Crowns was originally scheduled to run from May 24 through June 11.
WHERE: Jaeb Theater at The Straz
DETAILS: Crowns, one of last season’s most talked-about productions at The Straz, returns to the Jaeb Theater in a new, intimate production. This version reimagines Crowns as a spoken word and music event, giving a new and enlightening perspective to the play’s celebration of African American female solidarity and the power of the church in African American culture. Actor-comedian-spoken word artist Ranney Lawrence will direct this new look at a much-loved piece.
