Book by Marsha Norman

Directed by Kandace Crystal

Adapted from Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, THE COLOR PURPLE chronicles the inspiring journey of Celie, a remarkable woman who discovers her inner strength and voice amidst a lifetime of adversity. Set against the backdrop of 40 years, THE COLOR PURPLE follows Celie's evolution from a downtrodden young woman to a beacon of hope and empowerment. Featuring a vibrant score infused with jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music, and blues, this musical celebration is a testament to the human spirit and the healing power of love.

 

As we embark on this profound journey with THE COLOR PURPLE, we extend a heartfelt invitation to join us in amplifying the powerful message of Black voices, resilience, love, and empowerment that resonates within this iconic production. Let us unite in celebration of the human spirit and the enduring legacy of THE COLOR PURPLE - the musical about LOVE.
