The limited engagement, which will continue through Aug. 5, 2012, will feature E. Faye Butler as Mabel, Felicia Fields as Mother Shaw and Jasondra Johnson as Velma.
Here's how Goodman bills the show: "When Brooklyn-born Yolanda relocates to the South after the death of her brother, she finds strength in the tales of the wise women who surround her—and the powerful rituals connected to their dazzling hats. Fusing the music of the South with rich storytelling and abundant 'hattitude,' Crowns is a jubilant celebration of song, dance [and] cultural history."
Crowns, by playwright Taylor, earned five 2003 Audelco Awards and four 2004 Helen Hayes Awards, including Outstanding Musical Production and Director.
The Goodman Theatre is located at 170 N. Dearborn in Chicago, IL.
