Excelelnt acting by the entire cast. A little over by Ross aka Roshan, but he was good and powerful. Avinash was the pick of the lot in our group of friends. Keep it up!! and all the best.
I am sure the play will be well received and do well.

The acting was wonderful and it is not a story that you have seen before! The actors and director and produces all came out for the talk back which made it even more interesting. Great cast all with Indian backgrounds which made it more authentic!

The title has multiple meanings. Very funny for the first hour or so, then it starts to slide gradually into darkness. I think the script might benefit from a few... continued

I thought this was an OK play. I love the topic, very unique and fun to get a window into a call center in India. I guess my biggest issue is that there were so many... continued

This is a very nice theater. The play was well acted and about a subject we complain about a lot. It did show the "the other side" and as much as we don't like talking... continued

This is not a play for those who need/want a happy ending. Although interesting and at times compelling, it is a tale of sorrow and self-destruction with no redemption.... continued

Disconnect was an interesting play that brought up many ideas about cultural influence, generational differences, and conflicting goals. The characters were simple but... continued

The acting was solid, and the stage was very cool, but I think the attempt to address social and racial issues overwhelmed the actual storyline/plot. That being said,... continued

Unfortunately, I did not like this play. I thought that the actors gave their very best effort but they did not have much to work with. The venue is excellent, the staff was very friendly and helpful.

The play was more dramatic than I expected but that was a plus. It was insightfully written and week-acted. The ensamble of actors worked well together in spite of their... continued

This very entertaining and thought provoking play gives an inside look at the lives of India call centers, the people, their dreams and ambitions to get ahead.

To be fair, I went on preview night which is always risky, but I like to see productions early sometimes.

My colleague didn't like it much, but I enjoyed it. I... continued

A surprisingly compelling and complicated look at three characters working in a call-center in India, collecting debts from seriously indebted Americans. The story... continued

The talkback following the play was more helpful in gaining a perspective on the cultural humor than the play itself. The play starts slowly but gains intensity as the... continued
