Rehearsal Scenes Video: ANNA IN THE TROPICS by Nilo Cruz, Classic Theatre, San Antonio, February 7 - March 1, 2020
(video posted by Classic Theatre, San Antonio)
Anna in the Tropics is a poignant and poetic play 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. In the play, the lector reads Anna Karenina, impacting the characters’ lives and relationships.
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?
