Crowns: a gospel musical

 

Hats (aka Crowns) are everywhere, in exquisite variety. There is a hat  for every occasion, from flirting to churchgoing to funerals to  baptisms. When Brooklyn-born Yolanda goes 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 fuses Gospel music and rich storytelling with  abundant “hattitude” in this rousing coming-of-age tale.

Baby: A New Musical

 Is there anything more exciting, frightening and utterly transformational than impending parenthood? Baby, the musical from acclaimed duo, Richard Maltby, Jr., and David Shire, examines how parents-to-be experience the emotional stresses and triumphs, as well as the desperate lows and the comic highs that accompany the anticipation and arrival of a baby. 

 Three couples on a university campus deal with the painful, rewarding and agonizingly funny consequences of the universal experience of pregnancy and upcoming parenthood. There are the college students, barely at the beginning of their adult lives; the thirty-somethings, having trouble conceiving but determined to try; and the middle-aged parents, looking forward to seeing their last child graduate from college... when a night of unexpected passion lands them back where they started 


*Coming End of June.  Dates to be announced soon.
