Last night's BAM Theater Gala celebrated our fabulous 2011 Theater Season, particularly The Diary of a Madman, and the gala definitely matched the on-stage performances in taking our audience's breath away. Between the spectacular dinner on the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House Stage, the tremendous Belvoir company, and the wonderful guests in attendance, it was quite an unforgettable night of festivities - more details in the full article...\
