Currently in rehearsals, Emma Rice commented on previewing this new production at Curve:

‘Wah! Wah! Girls will be part Bollywood musical, part play and part dance extravaganza! It is a contemporary British work that celebrates India, the British Asian community and what it is to live in the UK in 2012. Leicester is a fantastic place to open a show, the audience is warm and adventurous. Curve is so stylish and we have built a loyal following after bringing The Red Shoes and launching The Umbrellas of Cherbourg there. We can’t wait to share this new production with audiences at Curve.’
