What I liked

The lead actress had a lot of positive energy and was super easy to root for, there were a few really great jokes, and it’s refreshing to see Bollywood-style music and dance performed on stage.

What I didn't like

Inconsistent pacing (speeding through dialog, long scene changes) that may be solved with rearranging/relocating scenes, a different set, or a longer running time. The rapping interludes do not compliment the style of the rest of the book/music, adding more Bollywood influences in the text/tracks and more hip-hop influences throughout the rest of the show could make more of a fusion of the two genres and allow for better flow between rapping narrator and scenes. Best of luck!

My overall impression

A great story about finding your path and letting love lead the way.
