Some Reasons Why I Think Ranga Shankara Is Slipping
Here are some of the reasons I am less happy with Ranga Shankara than I used to be…
Rangashankara had a mobile number earlier on which one could call and
make bookings; that is no longer working.
I also know (not hearsay, I have seen the telephone myself) that the
staff leave the phone off the hook sometimes just before a show.
Earlier, if I bought a ticket for a friend and wrote the friend’s
name, the box office would give it to the friend when s/he gave the
name. Now they refuse to do it, for no good reason.
When they have people not turning up for reserved tickets, they make a
big hue and cry about selling those tickets to people who are waiting.
Mow they tell me that the box office won’t be open between 12 and
4…I can’t see any good reason for that, either.
They used to send an email of their monthly schedule to those who were
on their mail list…that has stopped now (it used to be late but at
least it was sent.)
They very often will not take bookings for another play a day or two
ahead of the one I am booking for.
They had a ghastly experiment with pretentious, expensive canteen dishes; thankfully, Anju’s stuff is better now…but there is still a preponderance of fried stuff.
They are becoming progressively more customer-unfriendly. And when I
met Arundhati Nag elsewhere, I don’t feel like complaining immediately
