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 hopes 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, 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. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and Academy Award-nominated feature film, The Color Purple leaves its mark on the soul. Don’t miss your chance to see it when the performance makes its way to Winspear Opera House!
