THEATER Pais de Bicicleta. Aurora Theatre presents a new production of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz’s drama about three refugees journeying across the sea from Havana to Miami. In his review, ArtsATL critic Andrew Alexander says that, although Cruz inadequately limns the character’s motivation for such a drastic act, “the play moves well between what opens as a domestic drama and then develops into a tale of survival before finally moving, unexpectedly, into magic realism.” In Spanish with English supertitles. Through April 30. Aurora Theatre.
