Bombay Dreams

  • Bombay Dreams

With the prolific Indian film industry both the inspiration and the setting for the tuner, Bombay Dreams is a feast for the senses. Produced by Andrew Lloyd Webber, and with music by two-time Oscar winner A.R. Rahman (Slumdog Millionaire), the show brought Bollywood to the West End and Broadway.

It tells the story of Akaash, a young slum dweller, who dreams of becoming a huge movie star, and of his fateful encounter with beautiful Priya, the daughter of one of Bollywood’s greatest film directors. Can he achieve his dream of stardom or will this come at a price? Will Akaash and Priya’s love survive? And will they find, like in all the best Bollywood movies, their happy ending?

Featuring a script by Meera Syal, with lyrics by Don Black, Bombay Dreams made its official world premiere at the West End’s Apollo Victoria Theatre on June 16, 2002, where it ran for two years. The show opened on April 29, 2004 at the Great White Way’s Broadway Theatre, receiving three Tony nominations and playing 284 performances.
