“We just really want to have a great party. Pandemonium’s not just about fundraising; it’s really a celebration of the artists of Cleveland, with 300 artists performing on that one night… We want you to leave your pocketbook at home, come and just have an awesome time, and experience the art and richness of Cleveland’s art scene.”
-Raymond Bobgan, CPT Executive Artistic Director

“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.”
