Crowns Virginia Stage Company
Adapted from the book by Michael Cunningham and Craig Marberry.
One of the most popular productions in Virginia Stage’s history returns! In this gospel musical, 17-year-old Yolanda travels south in a coming of age story that is a testament to love, sisterhood, and family, where she learns that a hat can be more than a fashion statement. Multi-generations of women tell stories of life’s most memorable moments with their hats serving as allegories about the wonders of life – all with a flair of “hattitude.” This production is recommended for ages 8 and up.
