Pandemonium will play UCLA's Royce Hall Nov. 16-18. The Los Angeles run is currently the only U.S. booking for the work that incorporates vacuum cleaners, musical saws, bottles, hair driers, whirly toys, traffic cones and other found items to create an orchestra. A 30-member choir will participate in the Los Angeles engagement.
The Los Angeles run will be Pandemonium's final performance in the U.S. before Stomp creators Luke Cresswell and Steve McNicholas return the production to the U.K.
As previously reported by Playbill.com Oct. 4, Cresswell and McNicholas canceled the tour after Pandemonium played stops in Miami, FL, and Raleigh, NC. While reviews in Miami were encouraging, representatives for the Raleigh run informed Playbill.com that ticket sales were soft, which prompted the presenters to shorten the engagement.
Bookings in Washington, Chicago and Boston were also canceled.
Following its 2006 U.K. premiere in Brighton, Pandemonium toured to the Sydney Opera House in 2007, followed by a run at London's Royal Festival Hall in 2008 and an engagement at the Carre Theatre in Amsterdam in March 2009. Pandemonium uses vacuum cleaners, musical saws, bottles, hair driers, whirly toys, traffic cones and other found items to create a unique orchestra. The tour also incorporated a 30-member local choir for each of its tour stops.
