The Color Purple - US Tour

Oprah Winfrey presents this new musical based on Alice Walker's classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the landmark film by Steven Spielberg. 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. With a moving book and a score featuring gospel, jazz, ragtime and the blues, The Color Purple is ultimately a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.
