A pinch of laughter, a dash of drama and a truckload of fun that is the best way to describe my experience with Maya Bazaar.
After a series of what I can only call intense, serious plays, I finally got the chance to get back to my comfort zone- comedy musicals. But this comedy musical is unlike any other I have been a part of. For one our cast is huge- almost every other character has a double.
So our weekend rehearsals can only be described as fun, noisy and crazy family get together because that’s what we became over the last few months- one big happy family.
Anyone who has grown up in south India would be familiar with the famous Telugu classic Maya Bazaar. And this production is a contemporary adaption of the classic deliciously served up with our playwright’s very special brand of humour and wit.
Right from the start, there was never any distinction between the directors and actors. We were all part of the same journey to reach one common goal- to make ‘Maya happen’.
And with a lot of hard work and a lot more fun thrown in, I can proudly say we achieved that goal. And even after having done nearly 20 shows, we approach every show with same the energy and keep adding in new elements to keep the audience thoroughly entertained.
So if you haven’t caught a show yet, here is your last chance to watch it at Rangashankara.
Come be a part of the grand finale of this magical journey.
