Om! Playwright Mallery Avidon grew up in an ashram, and in O Guru Guru Guru, or Why I Don’t Want to go to Yoga Class with You, her heroine Lila will thoroughly explain to us why she has strayed from the path. It’s a three-part journey at CAST, including a PowerPoint presentation, a puppet show and a visit to the Eat Pray Love ashram, where we can expect a Julia Roberts sighting. Be prepared to take off your shoes, maybe sit yogi-style on a cushion, and drift off into meditation as Lila — actually the luminous Cody Harding — invites us to see things her way. If you’ve never entertained the notion that spirituality in America is overly commercialized, you will be shocked, shocked by Lila’s attitude in this comedy directed by CAST artistic director Michael R. Simmons. (Perry Tannenbaum) $18-$28
