"None of us suddenly becomes something overnight. The preparations have been in the making for a lifetime.- Gail Goodwin
This past Sunday my generous Aunt treated my grandma, my cousin and I to a Girls Night Out. We didn't get mani's & pedi's or massages, instead we did one of my absolute favorite things to do- we went to the theatre!

The Pasadena Playhouse is currently running the show "Crowns," a gospel musical about the crowns {read: beautiful hats} that adorn the heads of black women on Sunday mornings & special occasions.

As a COGIC Kid {Church of God In Christ for those who don't know} I grew up seeing these crowns on my grandmother, great-grandmother and multiple other women in the church time and time again. I always wondered why in the world these hats held so much importance that these women would fuss over them week after week and Crowns does a beautiful job answering that question.

While it started off slow, the engaging monologues and powerful vocals eventually draws you in. I could tell my grandmother enjoyed it the most but we were all entertained that night, which is exactly what theatre should do!
