Key West history comes vividly to life on stage when The Studios of Key West presents “Anna in the Tropics,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Cuban-American playwright Nilo Cruz that's set against the backdrop of a cigar factory during the Prohibition Era.
At a time when many Cubans immigrated to Florida to work in cigar factories, the play recounts the tradition of the lector, a person hired to educate and entertain workers by reading aloud to them as they hand-rolled cigars. But when the new lector begins to read Tolstoy’s “Anna Karenina” at the factory, he opens a door to romance, chaos and violence.
"Anna in the Tropics reaches for the artistic heavens..." - The New York Times
