Audible Inc., the world’s largest seller and producer of downloadable audiobooks and other spoken-word entertainment, is pleased to present actor, writer, and former correspondent for The Daily Show Aasif Mandvi in his Obie Award-winning play Sakina’s Restaurant, 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 New York stage for four weeks only 20 years after its Obie-winning debut.

Mandvi’s performance will also be recorded as an Audible Original production, available to millions of listeners across the globe.

Originally directed and developed by Kimberly Hughes and under the tutelage of legendary acting teacher Wynn Handman, this production is directed by Kimberly Senior. The creative team includes Wilson Chin (scenic design), Jen Caprio (costume design), Mary Louise Geiger (lighting design), and Jill BC Du Boff (sound design).
