The Color Purple
Make a joyful noise!
The musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film) The Color Purple is the most inspirational show of our summer season. With a joyous Grammy Award-winning score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues, this intensely moving American classic is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love, and a striking celebration of life.
Book by MARSHA NORMAN
Music and Lyrics by BRENDA RUSSELL, ALLEE WILLIS, STEPHEN BRAY
Based on the novel written by Alice Walker and the Warner Bros./Amblin Entertainment motion picture
THE COLOR PURPLE is presented by arrangement with TRW www.theatricalrights.com.
