I saw this in English a few years ago at Arena, but it seems a completely different play when presented in the original Spanish. Loved it.

Great story, well-acted and directed. Only flaw was for audience right side: view of subtitles obstructed occasionally by characters on platform (only affects us non-Spanish speakers). Really enjoyed it!

Acting well done, loved the premise of the play. Interesting that it was performed in Spanish with subtitles. Loved, loved, loved the beautiful theatre, first time there and very convenient to restaurants and Columbia Heights Metro.

Description

The arrival of a new “lector” at a 1929 Cuban cigar factory in Ybor City, Florida becomes a catalyst amongst the workers. As the “lector” begins to read from Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, forbidden passions are unleashed in this Pultizer prize winning play about the transformative power of literature in a landscape that pits old traditions against changing economic realities.
