The Tropic is once again proud to partner with the Key West Art & Historical Society to celebrate legendary author, playwright and Key West icon Tennessee Williams throughout March!

In 2003’s “The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone,” a fading star is faced with a lifestyle change when her rich husband suddenly dies while they are en route to Italy. She then sets off in a series of flings with gigolos found for her by an aging contessa. Each contact spirals further out of control until she becomes obsessed with one young man, who initially treats her well, but then with disdain.

“The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone” is a remake of the 1961 film of the same name, based on Williams’s 1950 novel. The film stars Helen Mirren, Olivier Martinez, Anne Bancroft and Brian Dennehy.
