Things aren't just tough for Pan: with the advent of Christianity, it's lean times for the old Greek gods. So with his trusty love boy Daphnis by his side, Pan leaves Greece for self-imposed exile in the greener pastures of America, and eventually emerges as a rock and roll icon. Once again it's good to be a God– Especially the party god of wine, music and festivities!
"The Pan show," created by James Jordan and Christopher Shorr, is an episodic musical that chronicles the adventures of the Greek god Pan
– half goat; half man – a bumbling "everyman" surrounded by a cast of whimsical characters ranging from Zeus to Jesus, and from slimy alien creatures to a pot-smoking panda bear. The audience navigates this sometimes surreal live theater world with the help of a kindly narrator – Mr. Patel – who appears to them via video screen, assisted by animated versions of the characters.
"The Pan Show" satirizes and celebrates the ridiculous in our society. Morality, celebrity, sexuality, race and stereotype, love and marriage, religion, and pot-smoking pandas are all the pins to be lined up and knocked down in the great bowling alley of Pan. Often outrageous and sometimes downright offensive, this is a show for people looking for a good laugh and who don't mind being laughed at themselves.
In this bawdy musical comedy series, Pan is revealed as the black sheep of the ruling Olympic family who can never quite live up to the expectations of dad (Zeus) or his A-list Greek god siblings (Athena, Apollo, Aphrodite, etc.).
