South Coast Repertory presents Anna in the Tropics by Nilo Cruz, winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play concerns the powerful effect art can have. A family of Cuban-Americans in pre-Depression Tampa spend their long days creating fine cigars and listening to the insightful reading of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, interpreted by a traditional Cuban “lector,” one who travels the countryside reading literature to residents. Juliette Carrillo directs.
