Anna in the tropics theater wit size

by Nilo Cruz
directed by Laura Alcalá Baker
Theater Two
Remy Bumppo Theatre Company
Resident Company

In a Cuban American cigar factory just outside Ybor City in 1929, a charismatic lector reads Anna Karenina aloud to pass the hours. As Anna’s passions are enunciated, the workers’ hidden desires bubble to the surface, becoming a powderkeg that must eventually explode in the Florida heat. Nilo Cruz’s passionate classic shines an unrelenting light on the search for identity in the American landscape.
