BHANGIN' IT: A BANGIN' NEW MUSICAL

PRESS COVERAGE AND UPDATES

Opportunities like this are few and far between, so I treasure telling a story that both explores and celebrates my identity and culture. As a South Asian American woman, being the Assistant Director and Swing on this production has given me a unique insight to its nuances. Both roles informed one another and helped me grow as an artist. I have greatly enjoyed being a collaborator on the development of this new musical. I have to pinch myself that I am really here. The story goes:


"While East Lansing University senior Mary Darshini Clarke has spent her entire life trying to figure out where she fits in, she has always found community dancing on the school’s prestigious bhangra team. But when she becomes the self-appointed captain of a new team of enthusiastic novices more interested in making friends than the right moves, Mary quickly learns that carving out her own path complicates her journey. As the pressure of the big national competition approaches, can both teams learn that what makes them unique could actually be the key to their success? Bursting with vibrant dance and electrifying music, Bhangin’ It: A Bangin’ New Musical is an exhilarating and joyous new musical comedy for America today."
