CROWNS

by Regina Taylor, adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry | Directed by Faith Bennett Russell

Gospel music and storytelling come together to surprise, delight and remind us all of the unique and diverse ways we express ourselves. When a young woman from Brooklyn struggles to find her place in the world, she is surrounded by a community of women that transcend place and time to infuse her with stories of faith, fortitude and pride.

CELEBRATE WITH ‘HATTITUDE’: We welcome your hat! If you’re concerned your “crown” may block the view of another patron (sight lines can be tricky in the theatre) please contact the Box Office for help.
