ANNA IN THE TROPICS
A poetic and poignant play about the power of words to change people’s hearts and lives, Anna in the Tropics takes place in the steamy environment of a Cuban-American cigar factory in 1929 Florida.

This winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize is recommended for ages16 and over. Don’t miss the regional premiere of this “shimmeringly beautiful” play (Miami Herald).
