An enthusiastically acclaimed Broadway revival opened in late 2015 and ran through early 2017, winning two 2016 Tony Awards- including Best Revival of a Musical. It is this version that is being staged. With a soul-raising, Grammy-winning score infused with jazz, gospel, ragtime, and blues, witness an unforgettable saga of despair tempered by the healing and enduring power of love, chronicling the journey of an African-American woman in 1930s Georgia. Celie is cruelly treated by many, a shy and frightened woman whose lot in life largely consists of eluding the brutal, treacherous men around her. Her journey of growth and maturity ultimately reveals an inner strength to prevail and triumph over adversity.
