SOTTO VOCE Theater J, Aaron & Cecile Goldman Theater
SOTTO VOCE By Nilo Cruz Directed by José Carrasquillo October 3-29, 2017
Love transcends all borders in Pulitzer Prize-winner Nilo Cruz’s passionate and lyrical Sotto Voce.
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.
“fanciful new drama”—New York Times
“Artfully…touches on war, loss, displacement, the lives of undocumented immigrants and more.”—Miami Herald
