From Mumbai, India. Arpana will present a Gujarati adaptation of All's Well That Ends Well. The production will be designed in the style of the 'Bhangwadi' theatre that catered initially to an audience of daily wage labourers in the late nineteenth century, but over time became very popular with a wide range of audiences. This style is a celebratory mix of live music, dance, and theatrical acting. The production will feature some of Mumbai s most talented singer-actors. Performed in Gujarati.
