Regina Taylor’s gospel musical sensation returns to the Goodman, promising audiences a joyful good time.   JUNE 29th - August 5th  

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 with abundant “hattitude” into a stirring coming-of-age tale. Crowns is a not-to-be-missed celebration of song, dance, cultural history—and glamorous headwear.

It will showcase an incredible cast which includes Pauletta Washington (Denzel's wife), the dynamic Felicia P. Fields, the incredible E. Faye Butler and Shari Addison of Sunday's Best
