Price: $15.00
The Charm City Fringe Festival and award-winning NYC theater artist Amanda Erin Miller present The Jew in the Ashram, a funny, poignant and lightly interactive solo show about a young woman who travels to an ashram in India after college seeking spiritual enlightenment and unexpectedly reconnects to her Jewish roots. Studying yoga provokes reflection on prayer, summer camp, and the role of Judaism in the lives of her late father, David, and his biological mother, Esther, Holocaust survivor he never met. At select moments, the audience is invited to move, chant, and reflect on their own spiritual journeys and identities—the ones we inherit and the ones we make for ourselves.

Physical and fun, Beauty and the Beat is about presumptions that go way off course.  You wonder about the guy who lives next door. Inspired by Tom Waits' song “What’s He Building in There,” nosy neighbors jump to big conclusions.  As neighbors, some know each other, others not so much. See what ignites when a neighbor’s odd behavior is evaluated by gross assumptions all because of branches of a tree that hang over a fence. The beauty of the moment has a life of its own like a disaster waiting to happen should a tree fall over!
