Add to Calendar 17-01-2012 22-01-2012 15 Times Square International Theater Festival Presents 'Melting in Madras: Seeking, Singing and Sickness in India, 1995,' written and performed by by H.R. Britton A story of seeking, singing and sickness. In 1995, a wide-eyed just-out-of-college H.R. Britton traveled to India for a year to gain spiritual clarity through yoga and music. But after three months, his quest for enlightenment took a detour when he became seriously ill. "Melting in Madras" is the story of this journey. Both funny and reflective, Britton uses storytelling, character work, and live raga-inspired singing and guitar playing to paint portraits and cityscapes and to tell the tale of his pilgrimage with all its confusion and beauty. Written by H.R. Britton, directed by Rajeev Varma. "What a show. H.R. Britton is a great storyteller ... Between the music, his impersonations of teachers, the verbal details of the adventure, and the tastes and smells of India, he pulled us in with each detail. He was standing in front of the audience, but really he had gotten into our heads." -- Peter Hajinian, Embedded "Melting in Madras is a lovely piece of work that ... will move you to tears, to laughter and to wishing you could leave on the next plane out." -- Lauryn Kronick, Fully Fringed http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=101555 Little Times Square Theatre & Payan Theater true DD/MM/YYYY
