Sotto Voce


Love transcends all borders in Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz's passionate and lyrical play.  A young Cuban man's research into the fate of the S.S. St. Louis leads him to a reclusive writer who refuses to talk about the ship of Jewish refugees that fled Nazi Germany only to be denied entry into both Cuba and the United States.  As he strives to uncover the mysteries she's hiding, an old romance is relived and a new one blossoms.  This dreamlike sonata explores the plight of the refugee, the resilience of love, and the sensuality of imagination.
