Winner of 2016 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival
Based on the Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the Amblin Entertainment/Warner Bros. motion picture, THE COLOR PURPLE is adapted for the stage by Tony & Pulitzer Prize winner Marsha Norman, with music and lyrics by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray.
“Wow! THE COLOR PURPLE is a direct hit to the heart, mind and gut. This revelatory overhaul is characterized by its grace, restraint and soaring spirituality, exposing the life-affirming material’s molten emotional core and connecting to the heart of Walker’s story with a power that eclipses both the previous production and Steven Spielberg’s 1985 movie.” It floors you, leaving you both drained and exhilarated.”
