''City of Dreams'' is a visual delight, which is all set to enthrall you with its sheer magnitude and opulence. The story revolves around Adaa. Destiny lands her amidst a sea of unknown faces, in the city of Bombay. It is said that if you have a roof over your head in this city- nothing is impossible to achieve. Add to it a dash of grit and determination and the world will be at your feet. Well this was what Adaa, thought. Talented, pretty, determined and of course she found a roof too over her head- Shridhuri''s house. But then the toughest of waves can shatter before they reach the shores. Adaa who dreamt of making it big in Bollywood, found herself face to face with the bitter truth of life. The treachery, sleaze and the sharks.

Dance like a Man
This highly popular production has completed more than 250 shows and has played in cities across the globe from Singapore to San Francisco. The story of Jairaj and Ratna, two Bharata Natyam dancers past their prime, is contrasted with that of their daughter Lata, who is on the brink of establishing herself as a brilliant dancer. Her imminent success creates tension and jealousy, and the audience is drawn into the dark secrets of family relationship and conflicts between generations. The play probes the characters to question their deeper motivations, but the mode is comic rather than tragic.
