Yes, it really is that good. A show about young rebels grabbing and shaping the future of an unformed country, "Hamilton" is making its own resonant history by changing the language of musicals.

Charm is an undervalued quality in the theatre these days, but this delightful one-man show proves just how winning it can be.


Why See Sakina's Resturant?

Aasif Mandvi's 'Heartwarming One Man Drama

Kicking off their brand new creative relationship with the Off-Broadway Minetta Lane Theater, audio book company Audible presents a groundbreaking slate of upcoming productions, including British American Daily Show correspondent, comedian and actor Aasif Mandvi's 'Sakina's Restuarant'. First debuting 20 years ago, the Obie Award-winning one man tour-de-force is an effervescent and touching spin on the American Dream, as told from the perspective of an immigrant waiter in New York.

Weaving together themes of immigration, family ties and both the heartbreak and joy that comes with leaving your home and finding a new one, 'Sakina's Restaurant' follows lead character Azgi, a young Muslim who leaves his small village home on the Indian subcontinent for a new life in the states and winds up at an Indian restaurant in Manhattan. Mandvi also brings a host of other colorful characters to life, including restaurant owner Hakim, his wife Farrida and their children, Sakina and Samir, as well as Sakina's American boyfriend. Amidst culture clash and confusion, this moving tale about the very real lives behind often meaningless statistics warms the heart and offers hope in our turbulent times.
