'Phizzical easily justifies its name: it fizzes and whizzes, sizzles and bristles and teases with comedy, makes you want to laugh and sing, and tickles you with a storyline that could be a cousin of The Comedy of Errors or Twelfth Night.' Roderic Dunnett
The masters of Bollywood experiences, Phizzical debut at the Rose with Bring on the Bollywood - a romantic comedy that features a fantastic soundtrack interwoven with wit, wild parties and some wicked dances.
City and country, old and new collide at Colonel Pawar’s ancestral home – the shabby and un-chic Lakshman Villa. Confined within these walls, his wife Mrs Pawar pines for the cultural polish of London, New York or Paris!
Enter the dashing Bollywood actor Amit and his newly eligible cousin Ronny – a quiet and withdrawn young British man who is here to scatter the ashes of his love. The Pawars have found a potential suitor to their fun and intelligent daughter Dr Katrina Pawar, who is brave, bubbly and in complete control, until she learns of her parents’ intentions. What could possibly go wrong?
Festooned in a kaleidoscope of colourful costumes and melodious music, Bring on the Bollywood is a glitzy theatrical experience inspired by real stories of love and infused with the works of Oliver Goldsmith and William Shakespeare.
