The Color Purple is not just the story of a poor, pregnant 14-year-old with nobody to talk to but her sister and God. It is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman who – through love – finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world. Set to a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, it’s a story of hope: a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.

“The musical The Color Purple does not shy away from the brutal realities of its origin, It addresses themes of sexism, racism, the disruption of traditional gender roles, women’s rights and sisterhood.
