This show goes to the edge of where grief lives. Raquelle's voice goes into the corners of the unusual, the band is amazing, and her presence, story and fabulous costume (s!) are magnetic and glittery. The show will change you, go see it! - Maia and Kim

Kill a little time at this intimate, infinite rock 'n' roll resurrection. Raquel is the sCion of soulful showbizzy self-revelation and starpower, in grand halls and close-up clubs. A conversation with music history and future legend that speaks to each witness uniquely from an incomparable, articulate heart.

Raquel Cion is an electrifying interpreter of David Bowie’s music. Her poignant, funny storytelling ties together these songs, which highlight the variety in his catalogue. This is not some trite cover band stuff; this is a religious experience.

I am looking forward to seeing this again after catching the original production several years, when Bowie still walked among us. It's a lovely tribute from a forever-fan, as well as a sweet reflection on her own earlier incarnations.

Why is this show not on Broadway? A poignant, funny, irreverent joy to see, the passion for David Bowie shines through in this stunning performance. Well done, Ms Cion. I laughed, cried and felt like you were telling my story. I will be back.

I was lucky enough to catch Raquel Cion's Me and Mr. Jones at Pangea. 
It is a gorgeous, heart-full journey through the world of Bowie and Cion. 
Written in pain. Written in awe. Raquel Cion channels Mr. Jones in an unforgettable performance.
