NDTV Hindu news covered the Chennai staging of Evam’s Urban Turban. You have to hand it to Evam for being media-savvy. Which other theatre event gets talked about on TV?

the production could certainly do with some cuts. Almost all the acts tend to meander, and actors tend to go on and on and on sometimes, flogging a dead joke.

Not too many personal writings about the play that I can locate. Madhumita has mixed views about the show – read her thoughts over at her blog.
