The day we went the play was sold out. Be sure to check before you go if you think you can just walk in and they will have tickets, not necessarily so.

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.
