The New Group presents this sparkling new Bollywood musical, set during Hollywood's Golden Age.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Seems Bombay is closer to the Borscht Belt than we thought, and at times it feels as if we’re in a Mel Brooks show, complete with cartoonish characters, ba-dum-bump punch lines and risque double entendres.’’
‘‘Derek McLane’s set (augmented by some winningly silly fixtures, like that papier-mache elephant); William Ivey Long’s costumes; and Wendall K. Harrington’s projections…capture the sweet-and-tangy, pink-and-saffron palette that is unique to Indian movies.’’
‘‘There is a charming combination of professionalism and an intentionally homemade quality in the musical about a failing movie studio and an aging hero (the endearingly outrageous Sorab Wadia).’’
