Janet Hubert, Regina Taylor and Carmen Ruby Floyd celebrated the Dec. 3 Off-Broadway opening of Taylor's Crowns at Jack Rose.

The new play-with-gospel-music is based on the best selling book of the same name — subtitled "Portraits of Black Women in Church Hats" — by photographer Michael Cunningham and journalist Craig Marberry. The book is a volume of photos of African-American women in their Sunday church hats. Crowns plays at the Second Stage, where it began previews Nov. 13.
