The Color Purple Tells the Story of Celie, a Survivor Who Finds Her Strength—Do Not Miss It!

The Tony Award-winning revival that exhilarated Broadway, The Color Purple, is now on tour across North America. From Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller and Steven Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated film comes a stage musical with a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel, and blues.

This stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie, a teenage African-American girl living in Georgia, who is given by her abusive stepfather to an even more abusive husband, as she journeys through joy and despair, anguish, and hope to discover the power of love and life. Though Celie spends most of her days as a servant in her own household, she tries to remain hopeful that she will ultimately be reunited with her sister Nettie and her children by way of her stepfather, Adam, and Olivia.

Over the years, Celie, increasingly jaded by her lot, finds ways to cope with life—-a potential lover in the fabulous Shug Avery, a friend in her stepson’s wife Sofia, and a love of making stretchable pants that turns into a booming business. Though her string of unfortunate events, though, Celie learns that the most important thing is that she is a survivor and that no matter what happens to her, she is still here.

With a soul-raising, Grammy-winning score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, The Color Purple is an unforgettable and intensely moving revival of an American classic and does its job of leaving its mark on the soul. Tickets start at $30.00 and can be found by visiting www.colorpurple.com.
