L.A. Theatre Works presents yet another production recorded live before an appreciative audience. Star Jimmy Smits embraces his role with verve and enthusiasm in this charming and passionate Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The entire cast rises to the occasion before the sensitive microphones, unreeling a torrid yet thoughtful romantic tragedy set among immigrant cigar-rollers in 1929 Florida. The surreal writing is translated warmly and creatively, making this listen a rare entertainment and making it clear other theater companies could easily follow this lead and add to the genre. A bonus interview with Smits adds some fascinating back story on the actor's reasons for making time for this project and why the play makes an important statement.
