BUMBUG: Dance Party Edition!
LAUGHistan presents BUMBUG – Dance Party Edition! is a special ONE NIGHT ONLY presentation, of a new Rock Opera by Samrat Chakrabarti and Sanjiv Jhaveri, is an electrifying musical reinvention of “A Christmas Carol” told through the looking glass of NYC Immigrants and Hyphenated America. Like so many immigrants, disillusioned Deli-owner Scroogewala left his motherland years ago to pursue the American dream. Amidst his battle with holiday merriment, Scroogewala is visited by a motley crew of misfits who remind him that love, loss and laughter are all a part of that dream he’d almost given up on.

Samrat Chakrabarti, Konrad Payne, Shiv Puri
