Not sure if your event fits? Drop us a line at [email protected] to check, or go ahead and submit anyhow – submissions are moderated and we’ll approve yours if it fits our criteria. Thanks for helping to make Huntsville a vibrant community!

Anna in the Tropics
May 16 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until May 18, 2019
DIRECTED BY VERONICA LEONARD
Winner of the 2003 Pulitzer Prize. ANNA IN THE TROPICS is a poignant and poetic new play set in Florida in 1929 in a Cuban–American cigar factory, where cigars are still rolled by hand and “lectors” are employed to educate and entertain the workers. The arrival of a new lector is a cause for celebration; but, when this lector chooses to read Anna Karenina to the workers, the novel becomes a catalyst in the lives of the avid listeners, for whom Tolstoy, the tropics, and the American dream prove a volatile combination.
