Sakina's Restaurant

Actor, writer, and former correspondent for The Daily Show Aasif Mandvi's Sakina's Restaurant is a vibrant, funny, and heartwarming one-man show that centers on an Indian immigrant who comes to New York to work at a restaurant and live the American dream. Sakina's Restaurant is written and performed by Mandvi, who brings his acclaimed performance back to the stage 20 years after its Obie Award-winning debut.

Entertaining and intimate, this story of what it means to be an American feels necessary and even urgent, and certainly as honest and refreshing as ever.
