THE COLOR PURPLE 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. This musical adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize- winning novel (and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film) spotlights Celie, a downtrodden young woman whose personal awakening over the course of 40 years forms the arc of this epic story. With a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues, THE COLOR PURPLE is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.

The Novel by Alice Walker won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction & the National Book Award for Fiction. The Broadway production of The Color Purple was nominated for 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score, and a Grammy. It won 1 Tony.

The 1985 movie version of The Color Purple, directed by Stephen Spielberg and starring Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, and Danny Glover, was nominated for 11 Academy Awards & 5 Golden Globes.
