Live Theatre Performances and Plays in Mumbai

With Mumbai known as the entertainment capital of the country and being home to the Hindi film industry, it is no surprise that the city has had a long and fruitful connection with theatre. Many theatre groups call Mumbai home, and some of these groups even offer acting workshops and improv workshops. There is no dearth of event spaces dedicated to live theatre performances and finding theatre events near you in the city is very easy.

Plays in Mumbai have always found a large and accepting audience. It isn’t uncommon to see families bundling up in the weekend to catch the latest play or even attend one that they have enjoyed previously. Some theatre groups use this to experiment with form and production while others run hugely successful Marathi plays in Mumbai. Many young and not-so-young people move to Mumbai in order to make it big in films and find that the acting theatre in Mumbai allows them to hone their skills and also make contacts in the industry.


Acting Theatre in Mumbai - The World’s A Stage

Mumbai has had an exciting and fruitful relationship with theatre. There are many theatre spaces, both big and small, that are the pride and joy of the city. Prithvi Theatre was built by the Bollywood megastar Shashi Kapoor and his wife Jennifer Kapoor in 1978. The theatre has shows every day and even hosts annual Summertime workshops and plays for children. Every year on the 28th of February, the Memorial Concert is held in its premises. An annual Theatre Festival is held in November, and many other programmes which promote language, poetry, international cinema, performing arts use this venerable institution.

The National Centre For Performing Arts or NCPA was established with the aim to maintain, preserve and promote India’s performing arts such as dance, music, theatre, film and other arts such as literature and photography. Established in 1969, this multi-event space has showcased some of the most important plays in Mumbai for decades. The venue has many event spaces some of which include the Tata Theatre and the Jamshed Bhabha Theatre.


Local Performances - Gujarati and Marathi Plays in Mumbai

Mumbai is also home to many Marathi theatre groups which have a huge fan following with generations of ardent supporters. Such is the support these groups enjoy that even singular plays and theatre artistes observes a certain amount of celebrity status. Some plays even have had over 2000 shows! One of the most popular Marathi plays in Mumbai is Albatya Galbatya which follows the story of a witch played by the talented Vaibhav Mangle.

All The Best has had over 3000 shows and has been adapted into a Hindi film and been produced in eight other languages as well.
