CATG is excited to present the latest addition to it’s lineup of programming – DECONSTRUCTING

A live interview series with successful theater artists across many disciplines – playwrights, composers, directors, artistic directors – DECONSTRUCTING aims to “deconstruct” the guest’s artistic process in regards to their major contributions to the American theatre landscape, as well as their human experience of forging a career at the top level of their field. Audiences will have the opportunity to ask these experts the burning questions they have always wanted answers to, and the evening will be elevated by live performances representing the milestones of the artist’s career.

Join CATG for these one of a kind evenings, and get an up close and personal experience with some of our industry’s great minds with time for photo ops and the chance to mingle.
