Uniting onstage YouTube sensation Parle Patel; West End singer Shahid Abbas Khan; and singer Drupti Vaja, Mrs Kapoor’s Daughter’s Wedding is a laugh out loud, comedy-dance production for a family audience that follows the life of Mrs Kapoor, played by Parle Patel, who is mother to five daughters, one of whom is getting married.
Audiences will be taken on a kaleidoscopic journey in true Bollywood style, with hearty measures of romance, drama, comedy and action, through the highs and lows of a typical Asian wedding, from the first family arguments to the emotional witnessing of the couple’s first dance. Mrs Kapoor’s Daughter’s Wedding presents the rollercoaster melodrama of the big, fat Indian wedding, meticulously transferred from home to stage.
The production is packed with cultural reference points and nuances, bursting with colour, energy and live comedy sketches that will resonate with audiences of all ages. Bollywood dancing that showcases the craft of AK Bollywood dancers is harmonised with live singing, a fashion show and Rhythm ‘n’ Bass dhol players to create a stage extravaganza unique to the UK stage.
