"Po Chile" Celie labors with a broom in her hand and fear in her heart, waiting for her missionary sister to answer her letters. Inspired by defiant, sassy Sophia, Celie finally emerges from a life of abuse. Then "Queen honeybee" Shug Avery ushers Celie into a world of love. Celie got a voice! And it's beautiful! Black American music, from gospel and jazz to soul and Motown floods the theatre as we all celebrate how Celie learns to "wear the pants." The spirit all around now — and forgiveness — and joy.
