Full of easy humor and a wide-eyed sense of discovery, writer/comedian Aasif Mandvi reprises his 1998 Obie Award-winning one-man play about a young man who leaves his village in India to work in a Manhattan restaurant. He stays with the restaurant owner's family, and each member of the family has their own story to tell. Mandvi effortlessly hops from the individual voices and attitudes of the father, who constantly worries about, well, everything, to the mother, who longs for home thousands of miles away; the little brother, whom the family ignores; and the teenaged daughter, Sakina, who is firmly caught between two cultures and dreams of singing in a rock band. Bright, insightful and heartfelt, Mandvi's narration presents the contemporary immigrant experience as something it has always been--personal. A marvelous performance. B.P.
