Nilo Cruz' Anna in the Tropics Featured on CBS Sept. 14

News   Nilo Cruz' Anna in the Tropics Featured on CBS Sept. 14 Nilo Cruz' Pulitzer Prize-winning play Anna in the Tropics, which recently began performances at Princeton, New Jersey's McCarter Theatre Center, will be featured on a segment of the Sept. 14 episode of CBS' "Sunday Morning" program, airing at 9 AM EST. Check local listings.

Playwright Cruz — a former McCarter artist-in-residence — has set his play in a Cuban-American cigar factory in 1929. The factory employs "lectors" to entertain and educate the factory workers, and a new lector who reads aloud from Anna Karenina becomes "a catalyst in the lives of his avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics, and the American dream prove a volatile combination."

The cast features Jimmy Smits, Daphne Rubin-Vega, Priscilla Lopez and John Ortiz.

Producers Roger Berlind and Daryl Roth plan to take the play to Broadway later this fall.
