Photo Flash: Marisha Wallace, Rachel John, Wendy Mae Brown and More in THE COLOR PURPLE in Concert

THE COLOR PURPLE played in concert at the Cadogan Hall last night, directed and produced by Danielle Tarento, and co-produced by Matthew Chandler for the British Theatre Academy. BroadwayWorld has photos from the evening below!

The cast featured Marisha Wallace, Rachel John, Wendy Mae Brown, Tyrone Huntley, Cavin Cornwall, Hugh Maynard, Seyi Omooba, T'Shan Williams, Bernadette Bangura, Rochelle Jackman, KrisHana Parker. With MD James Taylor, choreographer MykAl Rand, and sound designer AnDrew Johnson.

THE COLOR PURPLE was staged to raised funds for The British Theatre Academy, a unique performing arts programme that has inspired and nurtured the talent of thousands of young performers over the past 30 years.

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 concert adaptation of Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film) spotlighted Celie, a downtrodden young woman whose personal awakening over the course of 40 years forms the arc of this epic story.
