CROWNS - A MUSICAL 

OCTOBER 28 - NOVEMBER 6, 2022

By Regina Taylor, adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry

Director Gwen Ricks-Spencer

Musical Director Lawrence Allen

Crowns is a joyous musical celebration that tells the coming of age story of a 17-year-old girl, Yolanda.  A moving and celebratory musical play in which hats become a springboard for an exploration of black history and identity as seen through the eyes of a young black woman who has come down South to stay with her aunt after her brother is killed in Brooklyn. Hats are everywhere, in exquisite variety, and the characters use the hats to tell tales concerning everything from the etiquette of hats to their historical and contemporary social functioning.
