Music concerts are one thing, theater is another. Plays that weren't a very “in” thing till sometime back have now become an outrage. Plays and stand-up comedy events are sell-out events. The Comedy Store, Prithvi Theater, Ranga Shankara and many other are places where plays and stand-up comedy events take place. Ranga Shankara is one of the most prolific auditorium that India has. Located in Bangalore, Ranga Shankara is open to all genres and languages of theater. Ranga Shankara is so well designed that it needs no artificial amplification. Everybody in the audience can hear everything clearly. The whole aim of Ranga Shankara was to create an affordable theater that could be thrown open to the masses. Watching a play at the Ranga Shankara is mesmerizing. Ranga Shankara is also famous for its festivals such as Ranga Ugadi (celebrated during the South Indian festival Ugadi), the Mango festival and the annual Ranga Shankara theater festival.
