"Me & Mr. Jones: My Intimate Relationship with David Bowie" returns to Pangea for three weekends this fall following its sold-out run in the spring. The evening explores Brooklyn-based performer Raquel Cion's lifelong soul love for David Jones a.k.a. David Bowie's artistry and humanity. Through personal stories and deep cuts from Bowie's catalog, psycho-delicate girl Cion rockets the audience through her inner space as she investigates growing up as an outsider, the celestial realms of love, mid-life crisis, loss, and cancer.

"The show is riveting and the writing at once poetic and ethereal . . . Cion's finely-tuned band is fantastic throughout." BroadwayWorld.com, Victoria Ordin
"[Me & Mr. Jones] is a sacred rite of innate theatricality, artful sexuality and unapologetic emotion, Cion's show mourns a mythic cultural figure but celebrates the invention of who you really are."
