“The Color Purple has been born again, and its conversion is a glory to behold…”
– New York Times
Based on the novel by Alice Walker and the Steven Spielberg motion picture starring Whoopi Goldberg, Margaret Avery and Oprah Winfrey, The Color Purple is an acclaimed Broadway production that follows the heart-rending journey through life of Celie, an African-American woman in rural Georgia during the first 40 years of the twentieth century. With a narrative that moves the heart and music that moves the feet, it’s no wonder The Color Purple has been such a raging success!
“Ultimately a story of redemption, and Doyle and his cast do a miraculous job of capturing that essence, down to its spiritual core…”
– USA Today
An empowering tale and cultural commentary, Celie’s fight for freedom, and determination that a life of hardship does not have to equal a life without love, will not leave a dry eye in the house! The skill with which The Color Purple tackles harrowing subject matter without over-sentimentality, whilst remaining an engaging and entertaining musical, is nothing short of extraordinary!
“It’s a fine old-fashioned celebration of endurance, grace and goodness, given a powerful African-American depth.”
