Crowns | Burning Coal Theatre at the Murphey School | Stage | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Dec. 2-19 2010
Price: $5-$20

Two heads are better than one. If it's good enough for the Muppets, it's good enough for arts companies. Burning Coal Theatre Company joins Sanford's Temple Theatre to present Regina Taylor's gospel musical Crowns, the story of Yolanda who gets sent to South Carolina to live with her church-going grandmother after her brother gets killed in Brooklyn. There she comes to terms with her brother's death and embraces her religious heritage. The title refers to the hats that women wear to church (the play also brought "hattitude" into the lexicon). Performances run through Dec. 19. Tickets are $15–$20, with $10 tickets on Thursdays and student tickets for $5 before each show. Dec. 5 is "pay what you can" night. A performance by the First Baptist Church of Wilmington Street's Ward-Ingram Gospel Choir precedes the Dec. 12 show as part of the Lobby Lecture series; to see the choir, pay $5 at the door or use your play ticket. —Sarah Ewald
