Guards at the Taj

by manu narayan

Recently finished a killer play at La Jolla Playhouse called “Guards at the Taj” by Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph.  Directed by Jaime Castañeda, new Associate artistic director of La Jolla Playhouse (Chris Ashley, Artistic Director) and starring me and Babak Tafti.  It is the story about two low level guards at the grand opening of the Taj Mahal in the 1600’s.  Part Tom Stoppard and part Tarentino.  The play is both funny and dark.  Check out the NPR piece below.


Here was the promo for the show.
