Pandemonium in American Theatre magazine: “How to Stage a Must-Go Gala”

“We don’t call Pandemonium a gala, because it’s not one. We just don’t think of it like that. It is just a great way to show off our artists and our artistry to a wide swath of the community who might not be theatregoers, but who believe in our impact and love a great party.”

-Raymond Bobgan, CPT Executive Artistic Director
