WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The National Tour of The Color Purple kicks off April 17, 2007 at Chicago's Cadillac Palace Theatre in association with Broadway in Chicago. The Chicago run will be followed by multi-week engagements in major cities across the country including Los Angeles, Denver, Boston, Washington, Philadelphia, Atlanta, among others. The production features a libretto by Pulitzer Prize-winner Marsha Norman, and music and lyrics by Grammy Award-winning composers/lyricists Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray. Gary Griffin directs, with choreography by Donald Byrd. The musical, based on Alice Walker's novel of the same name, is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman, who, through love, finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world. With a moving book and a score featuring gospel, jazz, ragtime and the blues, The Color Purple is ultimately a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love, and a celebration of life.
