Bombay Dreams

Andrew Lloyd Webber's first foray into South Asian Drama, Bombay Dreams seems to be getting a "qualified" thumbs up by many of the reviewers thus far. To be sure, all the reviews that I have read have been extremely positive with regards to A.R. Rahman's score (referred to in one reiew as the Mozart from Madras) and the choreography of Bollywood regular Farah Khan. The critics however seem to be most dismayed with the actual writing of the show by Meera Syal. Unfortunately, living in Washington D.C., has not afforded me the opportunity to see the play yet, but the first chance I get, I will be there.

Here are some reviews:
Bombay Nights and Westend Dreams from the Guardian
First Night Review from the Times online
Ovation for 'brilliant' Bombay Dreams from the BBC online
Bombay Dreams Receives Mixed Reaction from the Indian Express
