Minita Gandhi

Anthony Aicardi

When: Thursdays-Saturdays. Continues through Oct. 7 2017
Price: $22, $18 low income or resident of Berwyn
From the moment she enters from the back of the auditorium, dragging heavy baggage (both a metaphor and a key part of the show), Minita Gandhi grabs our attention and keeps it for the full 90 minutes of this rich, resonant, sometimes hilarious, at times deeply moving autobiographical piece about an Indian-American woman in her 30s who's still struggling to find her place in the world. As directed by Heidi Stillman, who also worked with Gandhi to develop the show, this gracefully told story avoids the self-indulgence and narcissism that drags down lesser solo works. It helps that Gandhi is a true chameleon, equally convincing whether playing her father, her mother, a dreamboat boyfriend, or a younger version of herself. —Jack Helbig
