Reviews about Anna in the Tropics (Library Edition Audio CDs) (7):
Zovaithug
This play has an interesting setting and a lot of beautiful language, but Cruz does not successfully use these to create a memorable piece.

The history of the cigar factory lectors is one I did not know; I read up on it a bit after reading this play. If nothing else, Cruz gets credit for reviving interest in this bit of history. The language of the characters belies their backgrounds, but this can be chalked up to literary license, and even to a touch of magical realism.

But the story just lies there, and once their florid language is stripped away, the characters are mainly archetypes in a battle of ruthless progress versus the way we've always done things, and leaves little to remember.

The dialogue is decent and the characters are fine. The strength of the story is how the reading of Anna Karenina by the lector inside the cigar factory both effects and reflects the characters' lives.

This won the the 2003 Pulitzer Prize. That's pretty surprising to me, as this play, while decent, doesn't have anything that comes off as exemplary. Now, I've only read it, and there is an excellent chance that it is transformed into something different on the stage with the proper actors...but still, the dialogue and the plot are just not very strong. It's a play about family and romantic love, yet there are no "a-ha" moments, nor are there any lyrical lines that cause you to swoon over language use.
Fearlessrunner
Nice! well-written, compelling, romantic and musical, this noir piece about life in the hispanic Tampa cigar industry in 1929...... is good stuff. Liked it and it earned a pulitzer prize
Kearanny
I enjoyed this play. Beautiful story and great roles for actors of color.
Jonide
Excellent. I live in the Tampa area so it was fun to read.
Cordantrius
Excellent play for play reading group or book club
Goldcrusher
very good
This is a most interesting book written in play form about the cigar rolling business in Miami via Cuba. A story about a 'reader' which I never knew existed in factories.
