Just realized I failed to mention after going to see Rasaka Theatre's Midwest premier of Madhuri Shekar's A Nice Indian Boy, that I thoroughly enjoyed the play, it was funny, it was poignant. Although the Chicago Tribune reviewer seemed to think it resolved too much, I felt what was resolved left as many questions as answers, and one large part of the story line isn't resolved at all. @modiste1000 costumes were amazing as costumes of a contemporary piece should be: the costumes were unremarkable because you believe the character's would wear the clothes the costumer has put on and so you almost don't notice them. I'm of course biased, but my wife hasn't won a Jeff and been nominated twice for nothing.
Here's a blog post in which I talk about how cooking works as a trope through the play to bring home it's message. As someone who enjoys to cook, that stood out for me and heightened my enjoyment of the play.
