5. The Pan Show at Touchstone Theatre

You can catch this comedy Friday, Saturday or Sunday night. The Morning Call reviewed it well: “The Pan Show: In Pan We Trust” is an experimental musical, combining song, farce, and film in a plot where the Greek god Pan conquers the world. Pan pulls it off, and so does Bethlehem’s Touchstone Theatre in this nearly two-hour production that is a follow-up to the theater’s first “Pan Show” in 2010.
