Don't Miss It!
Standing apart from the crowd can be a risky but immensely creative kind of living. In "The Sins of Sor Juana," Purdue Theatre dramatizes the life of a 17th century Mexican woman who lived and wrote in astonishing ways for that time and place. Her story carries implications about choosing one's own path today. Don't Miss It!
