The production, now playing at the McCarter in Princeton, New Jersey, is directed by Emily Mann and has scenic design by Robert Brill, costume design by Anita Yavich, and lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski. The McCarter cast features Jimmy Smits, Vanessa Aspillaga, Priscilla Lopez, John Ortiz, Daphne Rubin-Vega, and David Zayas; none of these actors has been officially confirmed for the Broadway production as of yet.
Anna in the Tropics is set in a Cuban-American cigar factory in 1929. It tells of the unforeseen circumstances that result when a new "lector" -- a man employed to educate and entertain the workers -- begins reading to them from Tolstoy's Anna Karenina.
