Our Review

Forbidden Broadway used to have a great line about Les Miserables and its merchandising opportunities: ""Rich folks pay fifty bucks a shirt / that has a starving pauper on it. I couldn't help thinking of this line as I watched the National's expensively-produced new show about people living in slum conditions on the edges of Mumbai Airport: it has cost a lot of money to show this.

Looking for the best seats...
