One of the best places to catch a play , a very intimate auditorium with free seating , for the best seats ensure that u reach half an hour prior, the tickets are priced very well. has a superb cafe outside with a very lively atmosphere. Serves wine and sangrias on weekends

Do make it a lot to visit Prithvi Theatre at least once in your life. The place is beautiful and you'll love the time you spend there. Catch a play and end the day with a meal at the cafe just outside it. The food is really nice. Try their parathas, they should not be missed.

6 of us friends went to view a play "Dinner with Friends" and the experience was fabulous. The theatre ambiance is fantastic, the air conditioning is comfortable (not too cold) and the seating is adequate with a great coverage of the stage from all angles. An olden look adds to the charm and the feel of live plays. Great place... More

I have developed a liking for plays soon after i moved to mumbai and Prithvi became my fav venue. Be it a weekday which gives you an opportunity to see new groups and... More
