There are so many dining options on the same block as the theater -- Thai, Italian, Middle Eastern, Mexican -- you might as well eat here before the show.

It was both educational and exciting to hear Ayad Akhtar. I'm already a fan of his writing and this interview helped me further understand "American Dervish." The various comments made and questions asked were also helpful.
