Hi I am Richa, theatre makes me jubilant and reminds me that mere existence is a cause big enough to celebrate especially in a country like India, where there is no passing moment in which you aren't contributing to something beyond yourself. Join me as I show you what builds the dust and glory that shrouds theatre performers and creators, here in Delhi and Mumbai.
'George's Marvellous Medicine' and once again one could all but marvel at the storyteller. The play is championed by its excellent use of the modern technically equipped stage in addition to effective background score, building a darkness that fit the characters just like Dahl does it.BWW Review: Feroz Abbas Khan's MUGHAL-E-AZAM at JLN Stadium February 6, 2018
Not enough people have bothered about Indian movies enough to revisit them and create visual spectacles out of them in other mediums. Growing up in this almost dystopian temporariness of televised art, it was refreshing and all the more exciting to sit through three hours of extraordinary story telling that Feroz Abbas Khan's Mughal-E-Azam the play engaged in. The experience is loaded with generous music, the purest of Urdu writing, remarkable production value and most importantly, an overwhelming ensemble of actors and dancers that bring India's most remembered cinematic episode live on stage.BWW Review: THE WHITE SARI in New Delhi January 29, 2018
The mesmerising NCPA venue, the holiday season, the best of rock and roll and Broadway put together- surely makes for a million dollar quartet. This Christmas, Mumbai was host to a touring Broadway production of the Million Dollar Quartet, written and created by Colin Escott, Floyd Mutrux and Ian Talbot.

Our fascination for R K Narayan and his world of innocence is never ending and it is precisely this nostalgia that brings out the best of 'Malgudi Ke Gaon Se'. Rahul Saini's Malgudi is resplendent with the same old charming characters from a colonial India, fighting and finding easy resolutions for their daily hassles.BWW Review: ZIKRA at Akshara Theatre - A Brilliant Poetic Indian Dance Drama December 13, 2017
An ambitous poetic dance drama brought out by Vayam Performing Arts Society in New Delhi, India. The play sketches out the trials and tribulations of the good old artist, confined in the shroud of a capitalist world that cannot decipher his artistic pursuits.
