About this show

This soul-stirring musical is based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the Oscar-nominated film adaptation by Steven Spielberg. The Color Purple tells the unforgettable and inspiring story of Celie, a woman who triumphs over tremendous odds to find joy in life and her true inner beauty. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards, this landmark theatrical event is fueled by a roof-raising score that melds jazz, gospel and blues. "The Color Purple is a soaring, epic tale that made a joyful noise in my heart," says Time.
