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, hip-hop, and rich storytelling with abundant “hattitude” in this rousing coming-of-age tale.
