Friday, March 29, 2019

PETALUMA ARGUS-COURIER -- For Patel, this marks his Cinnabar debut. A graduate of San Francisco State University, he recently has had roles include playing the real-life mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan in Partition at Indra’s Net Theater, and appearances in Marin Onstage’s Ideation, Bay Area Children’s Theater’s Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site and CustomMade Theatre’s Of Serpents and Sea Spray.

As one cast member who truly hopes to someday live in India, Patel writes, “I feel super duper blessed to get to play one of India’s most beloved and favorite deities.” He hints that any human imperfections he might bring to the role will be left up to Ganesha to help with, since the much-revered god is well known, after all, as the remover of obstacles.
