The Bollywood Musical Revue

Back by popular demand, this international sensation explodes onstage with the look and feel of the Indian Bollywood movies that have been entertaining people around the globe for generations. Taj Express follows the story of one man’s passion and another’s genius, and is packed with action, romance, comedy, and glamour. Spectacular dance numbers are performed to India’s pop hits, including the songs of Oscar-winning composer A. R. Rahman, along with folk-music classics. This intoxicating production is the brainchild of acclaimed Bollywood choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant and her sister, director/producer Shruti Merchant. Taj Express, which dazzled audiences in their last appearance at the Center, blends vibrant costumes, rollicking music, and joyous dance with familiar film excerpts for a soaring adventure like no other. “The dancing goes straight to the heart,” (Sunday Express). “Riotous. Exotic. Graceful” (The Times of India).

Taj Express: The Bollywood Musical Revue will also be performed at the Hylton Performing Arts Center on George Mason University’s Science and Technology campus on Friday, November 15 at 8 p.m.
