As part of our ongoing community outreach program, The Lab will be holding a Community Talk Back following the September 20th performance.
Featured panelists include Dr. Garcia, a professor at FGCU, who came to the United States from Cuba on a raft, Gloria Jordan, owner of La Trattoria Napoli, and a representative from The World Famous Cigar Bar. The panel will be moderated by the Hon. Gil Perez.
We hope that you can join us for what promises to be an enlightening evening! And thank you for everything you do for the arts in Lee County!

Picture it: Ybor City, Tampa in 1929. Its hot and humid inside a small cigar factory. Workers are hand-rolling tobacco leaves, while a lector reads to entertain them anything from newspapers to poetry to novels. But when the new hire reads from the novel Anna Karenina , it sets in motion the major events of the story. Themes in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play love, lust, infidelity, violence, debt - turn the lives of these Cuban-American families into the very story to which they've been listening.
The passions of love and lust are delicately observed....The characters are sympathetic and true. - TheaterMania.com
