Anna in the Tropics — set in 1929 in a Cuban-American cigar factory — will open the McCarter’s new 350-seat Roger S. Berlind Theatre Sept. 9. Directed by Emily Mann, the Cruz play will run through Oct. 19. The new season at the Princeton Theatre will also include George Bernard Shaw’s Candida. The classic play about a young poet who causes friction between a clergyman and his wife will play The Matthews Stage Oct. 14-Nov. 2. Lisa Peterson directs.
The Tony-winning 1957 musical My Fair Lady will be mounted on The Berlind Stage, beginning Jan. 6, 2004, in a production directed by Gary Griffin. The Frederick Loewe-Alan Jay Lerner musical — featuring such tunes as "I Could Have Danced All Night," "On the Street Where You Live," "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?" and "Get Me to the Church on Time" — will run through Feb. 15.
Two other plays-to-be-announced will be presented during the upcoming McCarter season, one running March 23-April 11, 2004, and the other May 4-June 13, 2004.
