“Must visit place for Theater Lovers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is a must visit place for theater lovers. Very relaxed and disciplined atmosphere. Theater is quite small and for popular Play it is important to book in advance. Late entry is just not allowed.

“The best there is!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

Prithvi Theatre - the best there is. Have seen theater in different places but nothing comes close to the experience that Prithvi is! A absolute must visit. I love the compact-ness of the place. Its almost like you're a part of the play. The acoustics are great. Must reach in time else the door shuts and you miss the play. The cafe outside is great too ... have the Irish Coffee for old times' sake and gossip about all the celebs you see there... good fun!

“Intimate Theatre Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The stage is near.
It's almost like being interactive with the actors.
Every expression is easily discernible.
The seats are permannet benches and that's the only crib.

“Temple of art”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Prithvi with its ever so warm and small seating is a hub of all theatre activities and worth visiting for a live story telling experience. The atmosphere is electric and the performances rivetting.The hub of all artistic types. Worth visiting again and again.
