For years—since the play became hugely popular and everyone started doing it—I have been unable to remember the title of Anna in the Tropics. I always call it "the Nilo Cruz play" and then people tell me the play's title but I promptly forget it.
Anna in the Tropics won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 2003, of course, and it is kind of ridiculous that I haven't read it, but it was assigned to me for class on Monday and now I've finally read the play. I doubt that will have any impact on me remembering the play's title, however.
I don't get this play. I don't get what happens in it; I don't get why everyone loves it so much; I don't get why it won the Pulitzer; I don't get Cruz's themes. Worse yet, I think the play is kinda sleepy, and by sleepy I mean boring.
