Geffen Stayhouse new Bollywood Kitchen Dinner & Show

Geffen Playhouse has been one of the most successful and innovative theatre companies during the pandemic. When all theaters remain dark, Geffen Playhouse became Geffen Stayhouse, a virtual theater where theatre fans can purchase a ticket and watch a live, interactive performance in the comfort of their home.

The creative team at Geffen Playhouse kicked off 2021 with a whole new type of dinner and a show experience. They are happy to have Sri Rao, author and creator of the upcoming Netflix series The Actress, invite viewers to prepare a homemade Indian meal alongside him virtually.

Ticket holders receive a colorful box delivered before showtime. Inside are two boxes and an envelope with recipes and a shopping list that were staples at Sri’s family’s table. At showtime, while ticket holders prepare delicious dishes in their own kitchen, Sri interweaves the story of his parents immigrating to America. Discover the joy and nourishment that Bollywood musicals brought to his whole family.
