Crowns
by Regina Taylor
Feb. 26-Mar. 1

An untimely death sends a troubled teen to her grandmother down south and head-first into a rite of passage into African American history and traditional African culture. Guided by a community of spirit working “hat queens”, her journey provides her with a greater understanding of herself. Based on the indelible portraits created by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry of black women and their church hats, this critically acclaimed medley of music, dance and storytelling simultaneously celebrates identity while demonstrating the importance of family, faith and of course – fashion.

Spring Awakening
by Frank Wedekind
tr. Edward Bond
Apr. 23–26

Subtitled A Children’s Tragedy, the first production of this play in 1906 was so incendiary that riots broke out at performances, and the work was subjected to repeated censorship. Later generations have found it a powerful creation, shaped out of the inner experiences of its teenage protagonists. Recently turned into a hit Broadway musical, come see where the original journey began, set against the backdrop of a repressive, draconian and provincial nineteenth-century Germany.
