For the second presentation of their 2022-2023 season, Miami New Drama is bringing Anna in the Tropics, the Pulitzer-Prize winning drama by Miami playwright Nilo Cruz, to the stage once again. This stunning play first premiered at the New Theater in Coral Gables and now, it will be performed by Miami New Drama with Nilo Cruz directing the play himself. 

Set in Florida, Anna in the Tropics takes you back to 1929 at a Cuban–American cigar factory where cigars are still rolled by hand and “lectors” are hired to educate and entertain the workers. When a new lector enters the scene and begins to read aloud Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, he unwittingly becomes a catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners and suddenly the lives of the workers begin to parallel the novel. Old traditions and new ways collide while longing, love, and betrayal spark a volatile flame that signals the end of an era.

Anna in the Tropics opens on Thursday, January 12, 2023 and runs through Sunday, February 5 on select dates. Ticket pricing and showtimes to be announced.
