This is the musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film. This is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman who uses love to overcome adversity and find her voice in the world.
Celie is a downtrodden young woman living in the American South. An African American, Celie’s life is plagued with hardships from a young age. An abusive father, an arranged marriage, and poverty all work together to oppress her. Slowly, Celie journeys to freedom and empowerment over the course of 40 years.
With a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music, and blues, The Color Purple is a story of hope, and a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life. With a book by Marsha Norman and music and lyrics by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis, and Stephen Bray, The Color Purple premiered at the Alliance Theatre Company in Atlanta, Georgia and opened on Broadway on November 1, 2005. It was nominated for eleven 2006 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score.
