A celebration of song, dance, cultural history—and glamorous headwear.
Crowns is a musical play about honoring your roots, finding your groove, and embracing your own style. When Chicago-born Yolanda is sent down South after the death of her brother, she finds strength in the tales of the wise women who surround her and the powerful rituals connected to their dazzling hats. This jubilant musical traces the roots of Gospel through contemporary hip-hop, fusing rich storytelling in a stirring coming-of-age tale.
