Unfortunately - I have some less than stellar news for you. Your chances at an Ivy are out of the question. Your chances at a top 20 MBA are almost entirely out of the question as well.
On one hand, your background as an artist is interesting but the problem is you have a weak GPA, no professional experience, and probably no leadership (that's an assumption but one I think may be accurate). If you were an artist working for a large firm leading design projects and wanting to make the switch to the business side (e.g. marketing) then that's a great story and helps you stand out. However, your background is in theater and really, there would have to be an incredibly good reason for a ranked program to admit you versus the thousands of other far more qualified Indian applicants. Unless you have an answer to this reason that I don't know based on what you wrote, I think you're not in a good spot.
If you did want to get an MBA, you'd have to, at the very least, get relevant business experience and even then you'd have to have such exceptional experience to offset your GPA that you would be hard pressed to find a job like that after years on the stage.
I know this isn't an optimistic reply but I don't want to mislead you. I'm sorry - my professional opinion is that you're not in a position to be competitive in the MBA process.
