Crowns brings the musical experience back to the Playhouse stage in a big way. A female-driven cast tells the story of Yolanda, a young woman transplanted from Brooklyn to South Carolina following a family tragedy. There she meets a circle of women who share with her the history, the importance, the power of the hat. Crowns is a not-to-be-missed celebration of song, dance, cultural history—and glamorous head wear.
By Regina Taylor. Adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry. Additional music and arrangement by Chika Kaba Ma’atunde. Directed and choreographed by Patdro Harris.
