Description: From Alice Walker’s bestseller and Stephen Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated film comes a stage musical with a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues. Hailed as “One of the greatest revivals ever!” by New York Magazine, "The Color Purple" is the epic tale of 40-years in the life of a family in rural Georgia. At its center is fourteen-year-old Celie. When Celie is forced by her overbearing father to marry a cruel farmer, called “Mister,” she is separated from all that she loves. With a soul-raising score, The Color Purple gives an exhilarating new spirit to this Pulitzer Prize-winning story. This stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie as she journeys from childhood through joy to anguish and then hope as she discovers the power of love and life.
The beautiful production garnered eleven Tony nominations, and "The Color Purple" won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, two Drama Desk awards, and the 2017 Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album.
