Orphaned by a hurricane, the hapless Ti Moune has been raised by a kind pair of elderly peasants. When she comes of age, she falls in love with a young man from the privileged class, and the island's gods disagree about whether or not she can ever achieve her heart's desire. From the creators of Ragtime comes this charming tale, which examines the limits of love's power in this Caribbean paradise.
Admission: $15 or Elon ID. Tickets available at the Center for the Arts Box Office.
