Workshop presentation for Ybor City, a new musical by Anita Gonzalez and Dan Furman.
Set in Tampa, Florida in 1918, the musical (based on true events) follows an American community struggling to unite against an abusive factory owner and collectively form a multi-racial union. When Rafael comes to town to read newspapers for the factory workers, he falls for Teresa, the sister of union organizer Catalino. Romance blossoms, tensions rise, and when Catalino stands up for worker rights, violence erupts.
Production states: "Each workshop day will consist of 3 hours of workshopping, culminating in a one-hour presentation that same day. It is an opportunity to work intimately with the production team to develop the play and present the work as it progresses over the four workshop dates."
