Not unlike Sideshow's Theatre's No More Sad Things, Rasaka Theatre's will-they-or-won't-they romance playing upstairs at Victory Gardens centers on a middle-aged woman's flame with a man half her age, this time in Mumbai. Pay no mind to how predictable or sometimes campy it all is—Lavina Jadhwani's production of Shane Sakhrani's comedy is a warm, family-friendly screwball delight that effortlessly translates the cultural implications and stakes of life as an older woman in modern India to something universal. Age discrepancy notwithstanding, it's hard not to root for Anand Bhatt's adorably dorky young Vinod to end up with Alka Nayyar's title widow; you'll be sold immediately. —Dan Jakes
