Portland Playhouse garnered much acclaim for its musicals with successes such as A Light in the PiazzaBloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson, and most recently, ScarletCrowns brings the musical experience back to the Playhouse stage in a big way. A female driven cast tells the story of Yvonne, a young woman transplanted from Brooklyn to South Carolina following a family tragedy. There she meets a circle of women who share with her the history, the importance, the power of the hat.Crowns is a not-to-be-missed celebration of song, dance, cultural history—and glamorous headwear.
