Staging of his own Anna in the Tropics misses emotional beat

Despite its disappointments, this production delivers a luxuriant blend of seductive poetry and dazzling visuals. While the complete fulfillment of this lovely, enigmatic work has yet to be realized, this production can content us while we wait for the definitive one.

Editor's note: A September 23 stage review ("Apocalypses Now") mistakenly reported that Miami's Juggerknot Theatre Co. had shut down. The company recently ceased full-scale productions, instead shifting to developing new material through a series of workshops and staged readings. New Times regrets the error.
