Pack Your Sins and Go to the Devil - A Mardi Gras Celebration
A bawdy, tawdry, tacky, fab-u-loose Mardi Gras celebration with the King and Queen of your the Pangea Crewe, Jay Rogers and Phyllis Pastore and John McMahon driving the float. Join us for a little wickedness, a lot of cocktails, and a laugh at life and death while eating jambalaya!
Since arriving in NYC 30 years ago, Phyllis has gone from Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor (she DOES have a Masters Degree...but doesn't always act like it), to singing bartender, to legal secretary, to international cabaret performer, to actress for film, TV, commercials and voice overs. And it's gone by in the blink of any eye. She has always had a love for traditional jazz and performs regularly with the JT Wildman Jazz Band. Phyllis is excited to team up with long time friends John McMahon and Jay Rogers to celebrate Mardi Gras at Pangea! Laissez le bon temps rouler!
Over the years Jay has enjoyed many aspects of the show business. He's even won nominations and some awards too. You can take Jay out to dinner and we can talk about all that if you want. Glad to share this evening with Phyllis and John! Let the good times roll!
Composer, musical director, pianist and arranger John McMahon has been in constant demand since arriving in NYC. He has worked with performers such as Heather MacRae, Helen Schneider, Phyllis Pastore, Mary Foster Conklin, Charles Cermele, Liliane Montevecchi, Mr. Ruby Rims, Florence Henderson, Andre De Shields, the late Tony Randall, Jo Anne Worley, Sylvia Miles, Baby Jane Dexter, Laura Bell Bundy, Elaine Brier, Jil Aigrot, Priscilla Lopez, Lea DeLaria and the late great Bruce Hopkins. In addition, John has written the score for the musical "Satan's School for Girl's" and his latest work with Jay Jeffries, "Love and Other Fables." And he counts celebrating Mardi Gras with Jay and Phyllis as a great way to start off this new year!

Downtown's intimate supper-club Pangea is the ultimate in alt, playing home to some of the best in alt cabaret. The New York Times recently called it "a bohemian oasis not unlike the fabled Max's Kansas City from days gone by."
