ANNA IN THE TROPICS

by Nilo Cruz
directed by Larissa Kokernot
February 11 - March 12

Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama

A Cuban-American family in the 1920s eagerly awaits the arrival of a lector to read at their cigar factory. When he introduces them to Anna Karenina, the hot, humid Tampa factory starts to mirror the scandalous Russian aristocracy of Tolstoy’s classic.

[Cruz] has turned out many wonderful plays — but none more shimmeringly beautiful.

New York Times Critic's Pick

When Marley brings her new fiancé to her childhood home in small-town Texas, she finds herself stranded in the past. Hoping for a quick visit to her estranged father’s liquor store, she’s soon forced to deal with her football hero ex-boyfriend, a single mom insistent on a girls' night out, and the ghost of the town’s bear-wrestling pioneer founder.

A rollicking good ghost story.

FLY BY NIGHT: A NEW MUSICAL

by Will Connolly, Michael Mitnick, and Kim Rosenstock
June 10 - July 23

Set against the backdrop of 1965’s East Coast blackout, Fly By Night is an ode to young love in a world filled with darkness. In a story both hilarious and bittersweet, a melancholy sandwich maker’s life is changed forever by two captivating sisters. With a score that will stay with you, Fly By Night reminds us that, “life is not the things we do...it’s who we’re doing them with.”

“...immersed in tradition, but utterly original.”

"But as a parable for where we're headed on that big old highway in the digital sky,
the nether exerts a viselike grip..."
