Surati for Performing Arts

Surati for Performing Arts (www.suratifpa.org) proudly presents the Off-Broadway premiere of Rimli Roy’s RAMAAVAN, the story of Prince Ram and King Ravan, based on the ancient Indian literary text, “The Ramayana," from Nov. 2nd to 6th (total of SEVEN performances) at the historic American Theatre of Actors (Cullum Theatre) on 314 W 54th St. in Times Square.

The musical is performed in English by an international cast, including Caucasians, African Americans, LatinX, and South Asians. It is a story of duty, honor, love, courage, and revenge told through verse, traditional (classical and folk), and experimental Indian dance and music, along with world genres of musical theatre, opera, contemporary, jazz, ballet, and modern dance. The concept, script, costumes, and music are all original and were workshopped and performed in 2019 in Jersey City and Hoboken, New Jersey.

"RAMAAVAN is an evolving theatrical experience that appeals to a global audience today," said creator and director Rimli Roy. "Though the tale is ancient, the modern-day interpretation of the story challenges the ‘Status Quo,' and the dominant themes include peace, mutual respect, understanding, cultural representation, brotherhood, and harmony, all of the values we constantly espouse through our work at Surati for Performing Arts."

Performances will take place from Wednesday, Nov. 2nd to Sunday, Nov. 6th at The American Theatre of Actors – Cullum Theatre at 314 W 54th St. in Times Square
