Mumbai's Art and entertainment

Right from the very moment of its conception in 1978, the Prithvi Theatre, at Juhu Church road, situated in Mumbai, has been committed to the development of theatre in India. The 200-seat theatre was initially built to help develop a professional (primarily Hindi) theatre.

The various projects it has taken up, supported and managed as a consequence reflect this constant desire to learn and grow and contribute to theatre in India.
