WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Hats. Fabulous, flamboyant, and fantastical, the church-going "crowns" of black women proclaim their heritage, identity, and ways of life in this celebration of family and fortitude. Part revival meeting, part fashion show with a sassy "hattitude" - it fills the stage with stories of struggle and triumph, raising the roof and the temperature with gospel songs cried, stomped, and testified from the heart. Crowns, by Regina Taylor, is based on Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry book Crowns: Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats.
