Two Plays at Ranga Shankara

Today and tomorrow (13th and 14th December), at 7.30pm, Ranga Shankara features “Pizzazz”,the English comedy by Hugh Leonard that Sharanya Ramparakash has already staged a few times. It’s a comedy dealing with relationships and the male and female thought processes….I have earlier reviewed this play (the review can be found at

Pizzazz Review

dated 17 Oct 07) , and I think that since the young theatre group, Dramanon, is evolving well, the play is worth watching.. For telebooking, call 99808 61057.

On December 15 and 16 (at 7.30pm, with an afternoon show on the 16th at 3.30 pm), Koothu-p-Pattarai, the Tamizh theatre repertory from Chennai, is performing the German classic, “Woyzeck”, in Tamizh, as part of its 30th anniversary celebrations. The work by George Buchner was also made into a movie by Werner Herzog. Ciontact Nikhil, at 99868 63615.

Ranga Shankara can be contacted on 2659 2777. However, they do not accept tele-bookings.

    Deepa Mohan,

    Can you please stop these frequent Ranga Shankara updates ? It’s upto Ranga Shankara to update their patrons. Bangalore Metblogs is not the place for PR work of this sort, however well intentioned it might be. If somebody is so interested in theatre they can (a) look up the engagements columns of news papers (b) subscribe to mailing lists , etc.

    Contrary to the above comment, I welcome these announcements, since the newspapers don’t really do a good job of this.

    But that’s just IMHO.

    @BNB…I do not post about all Ranga Shankara events, only those that I, personally, am attending or have attended. So it is my personal recommendation and NOT a RS “writeup”. I have no affliation with Ranga Shankara, or any other theatre group/space, except that I go to watch the plays.

    Perhaps, BNB has a point. Imagine if someone started announcing every movie they were going to watch or has just watched!

    It is one thing if you watch a play and give a detailed review / critique. But quite often, there is little of value in these posts for the average reader. Many posts merely seem to announce that you watched it, and 1-2 lines on how you felt.

    Think about it.
