 THE SHOW

Following its standing room only performances at Judson Arts Wednesdays & The PIT Loft, Raquel Cion’s latest show, “Me & Mr. Jones: My Intimate Relationship with David Bowie,” returns for ONE NIGHT ONLY to The Slipper Room. Join this “psychodelicate” girl as she explores her “soul love” for arguably the most important contemporary artist of the past 50 years, David Bowie. Her personal stories and the deep femoral cuts of some of her favorite David Bowie songs are the fuel that Ms. Cion uses to rocket us through her inner space: growing up as an outsider, navigating the celestial realms of love, loss, and mid-life crisis, and ultimately seeking acceptance and hope in the embrace of David Bowie’s artistry. Her story is one that resonates deeply. Do not miss your opportunity to discover once and for all if there is life and maybe even love on Mars.

“In this brilliant virtuoso performance, Raquel Cion channels Bowie for the evening and gives us all an abiding sense of how much his work meant to his old fans and still means to his generations of new admirers. Strongly recommended.”~Simon Critchley,Bowie(OR Books, 2014)
