Desire lights the fire-illusion fans the lyric flame.
Music sets the rhythms, while characters develop fame.
This epic starts in one place-moves through time, and then,
The clever writer brings the players round to home again.

Full Biography 

The Plot

 Sita is a goddess separated from her beloved Lord and husband Rama. Nina is an animator whose husband moves to India, then dumps her by e-mail. Three hilarious shadow puppets narrate both ancient tragedy and modern comedy in this  interpretation of the Indian epic Ramayana. Set to the 1920’s jazz vocals of Annette Hanshaw, Sita Sings the Blues earns its tag line as
“The Greatest Break-Up Story Ever Told.”
