After the successful season at The Peacock Theatre, London, the all-singing, all dancing- Bollywood spectacular Taj Express will be arriving at Birmingham Hippodrome from Tuesday 11- Saturday 15 September for a strictly limited run.
The Taj Express follows the story of one’s man passion and another mans genius. It takes us on a journey with young composer Shankar who is struggling with music, and its only when he begins to follow in the footsteps of his idol, A.R. Rahman that he discovers his path to success.
The production reveals the secrets of the world’s most prolific film industry, and the people behind the screen who makes the magic in India’s factory of dreams.
Taj Express blends explosive dance with the hits of India’s most iconic composers and is brought to life by the stars of Bollywood cinema and its greatest musicians live on stage and includes an unforgettable soundtrack featuring the songs of Oscar winner A.R. Rahman, composer of Danny Boyle’s 2008 film Slumdog Millionaire. The production follows on from the success of The Merchants of Bollywood and Wah! Wah! Girls.
With a cast of multi-talented performers, Taj Express is an uplifting show full of colour, high-energy music and sensational dance scenes choreographed by one of Bollywood’s top young choreographers, Vaibhavi Merchant and directed by her sister Shruti Merchant. The pair were part of the creative team behind The Merchants of Bollywood, based on the life of their grandfather Shri Hiralalji and Vaibhavi herself.
