Cuban-born Cruz sets his work in Spain where an artist reunites with his daughter after a long separation with her mother. Featured in the story are "an earthy Spanish woman, a handsome Moroccan and the spirit of Federico Garcia Lorca." Sharon Ott directs the co-premiere with The New Theatre in Coral Gables, Florida. The run ends on May 15.

Cruz' Anna had a brief run on Broadway earlier this season. Jimmy Smits starred in the production, which began at the McCarter Theatre in New Jersey.
