From playwright Regina Taylor comes Crowns, a moving and celebratory musical play that highlights the beauty and brilliance of the traditional Black church.
Yolanda, a young Black woman from Brooklyn, has traveled down south to stay with her aunt after her brother is killed. There, she encounters a world full of traditions… with a hat for every occasion! From flirting to churchgoing to funerals to baptisms, these crowns symbolize a legacy that spans from African rituals and slavery to the current day. Can Yolanda find her footing in this royal new world?
Through a blend of Gospel, poetry, and dance, Crowns is a musical play about honoring your roots, finding your groove, and embracing your own style.Learn more
