Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3 launched its Spotlight Series August 2 with SHABASH!, a co-presentation with Hypokrit Theatre Company’s Tamasha highlighting new music and comedy from artists of South Asian descent.

The event kicked off with a pre-show rooftop happy hour—to the sounds of DJ RuBot—with performances August 2, 3, and 4 only. Community's Danny Pudi and Outsourced star (and recurring character on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend) Parvesh Cheena hosted.

SHABASH!, directed by Zi Alikhan with music direction by Annastasia Victory, featured Nick Choksi (Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812), Angel Desai (An Ordinary Muslim, Company), Meetu Chilana (Monsoon Wedding), Deepali Gupta (Pay No Attention to the Girl), Alingon Mitra (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah, Adam Ruins Everything), Kamala Sankaram (Thumbprint), Jahn Sood (The Disappearing Man), Kuhoo Verma (Monsoon Wedding), and songs from Monsoon Wedding (by Vishal Bhardwaj, Masi Asare, and Susan Birkenhead) and the band Bombay Rickey. Zahra Ali joined as a special guest for the opening performance.
