(UNION, NJ) -- Kean Theatre Conservatory presents Anna In The Tropics from February 26-29 in the Wilkins Theatre. In the play by Nilo Cruz, the year is 1930 - the place Ybor City (Tampa) Florida, where a Cuban-American family impatiently await the arrival of a new lector whose job is to read books aloud to the factory workers as they earnestly hand roll cigars.
Nilo Cruz, who received a Pulitzer Prize for this play, weaves his own poetry with Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. When it is all said and heard- you won’t be the same.
