Now in its final weeks at the Minetta Lane Theatre, Sakina's Restaurant has announced a special midterm election-night promotion, offering $20.18 tickets for the performance on November 6 using the code VOTE18.

Performances of Sakina's Restaurant began October 5 ahead of an October 14 opening and the show will conclude its extended run on November 11. Written and performed by actor, writer, and former Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi, the solo play centers on an Indian immigrant who comes to New York to work at a restaurant and live the American dream. Mandvi returns to the stage in his critically acclaimed performance 20 years after the play's Obie-winning debut.

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 B.C. Du Boff (sound design).

Mandvi's performance will be recorded as an Audible Original production.
