Eat, Pray, Laugh - A 1-Woman Show
A wholly enlightening 1-woman show. Hilarious, inventive & thoroughly charming. Chronicling Alicia's 3-month solo trip across India, as she searched for spiritual salvation (and maybe a nice guy!), the show describes her encounters with seductive French yoga teachers, scary Indian toilets, an Italian fashion exporter with a Krishna fetish, Chabad Jews on the Ganges, and mosquitoes the size of small ponies. Ultimately, certain that her journey was not going to turn out anything like she'd imagined, Alicia discovers the true meanings of mustaches, masala chai, laughter (she's now a certified laughter yoga instructor), and lots about life & love.

Place: The Glaser Center, 547 Mendocino Ave., Santa Rosa Time: 8pm
