Anna in the Tropics

Jimmy Smits stars in the 2003 Pulitzer Prize-winning play from Nilo Cruz. This poignant and poetic drama captures 1929 Florida at a time when cigars are still rolled by hand and “lectors” are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration. But when he reads aloud from “Anna Karenina”, he unwittingly becomes a catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners.

With Alma Martinez, Jonathan Nichols, Winston Rocha, Onahoua Rodriguez, Adriana Sevan, and Herbert Siguenza. Stage manager, John Lovick. Sound Design, Jeremy Lee. Associate Producer, Brendan Fox. Recording Engineer, Mark Holden. Our director is Jose Luis Valenzuela.
