"Devdas does an excellent job of blending classic tradition with a familiar reality show format, which not only gives the female characters a (much needed) larger role in the story, but also succeeds in keeping modern audiences invested, regardless of their background or knowledge of Indian dance..." - Katherine Nedder (Theatre is Easy) reviews Devdas

"An investigation into identity, and ultimately a celebration of it...musically adventurous...a surprisingly moving finish." - Laura Collins-Hughes (New York Times) reviews Eh Dah? Questions for My Father 

"The direction of this production by Arpita Mukherjee is fresh and fun. She keeps the overall experience bright and energetic. You're never bored watching nor feel it's moving too slow." - Scott Adams (Stage Buddy) reviews Romeo and Juliet

"By making the whole audience a part of the story, director Arpita Mukherjee fosters a relaxed, egalitarian atmosphere that dispels much of the awkwardness and embarrassment that frequently accompany discussions of sex." - Ben Demers (DC Theatre Scene) reviews My First Time

"A creative weaving of a traditional story with modern music..." - Katherine Nedder (Theatre is Easy) reviews Chokher Bali 

"Simple and effective direction...this is what a great one-woman musical can look like." - Zachary Stewart (Theatermania) reviews Eh Dah? Questions for My Father

"The smart, peppered with humor and filled with depth." - Evan Seplow (Stage Buddy) reviews How to Succeed as an Ethnically Ambiguous Actor

"Hypokrit and director Mukherjee (who has also designed costumes and sound) have delivered a compelling and important production. Not only does it allow those already familiar to see the play from an alternate and enlightening angle, it invites others—who might merely be drawn by the Bollywood aesthetic—to experience the linguistic beauty and artistry of Shakespeare perhaps for the first time." JK Clarke (Theater Pizzazz) reviews Romeo and Juliet
