ANNA IN THE TROPICS Comes To Classic
Nilo Cruz's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama is set in 1929 Florida in a Cuban-American cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand, and "lectors" are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The lector reads Anna Karenina as the play delves into desire, power, rivalry, secrets and love. As the lives of a Cuban immigrant family begins to intertwine with the scandalous lives of Tolstoy's characters, we ask what do we need to feel loved and alive?
