"One of the easiest decisions of my career was choosing to record a new cast album of The Color Purple - we'd be crazy not to capture these performances forever. I can't wait for Broadway fans everywhere to get a taste of the unforgettable vocal power that is being delivered by this remarkable cast nightly at the Jacobs Theatre," said Producer Scott Sanders.

The company also features Isaiah Johnson, Joaquina Kalukango, Kyle Scatliffe, and Phoenix Best, DWayne Clark,Lawrence Clayton, Carrie Compere, Patrice Covington, Adrianna Hicks, Bre Jackson, Grasan Kingsberry, Kevyn Morrow, Ken Robinson, Antoine L. Smith, Carla R. Stewart, Akron Watson, and Rema Webb.

Based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize winning novel and the Warner Bros. / Amblin Entertainment motion picture, The Color Purple is adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize and Tony award winner MarSha Norman, with music and lyrics by Grammy award winners Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray.

THE COLOR PURPLE is an unforgettable story of enduring love and triumph over adversity. With a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, this stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie, as she journeys from childhood through joy and despair, anguish and hope to discover the power of love and life.
