This Caribbean-influenced musical folk tale tells the story of Ti Moune, a peasant girl who rescues Daniel, a boy from the other side of the island, with whom she falls in love. Unbeknownst to Ti Moune, the pompous gods of the island make a bet with one another over which is stronger: love or death? Don\'t miss this Calypso-flavored tale of love in a world of prejudice.
This production is made possible in part by a grant from the Southwest Foundation, thank you!
