THE COLOR PURPLE is the 2016 Tony Award® winner for Best Musical Revival! Hailed as “a direct hit to the heart” (The Hollywood Reporter), this joyous American classic, directed by Tony® winner John Doyle, has conquered Broadway in an all-new “ravishingly reconceived production that is a glory to behold” (The New York Times). This stunning re-imagining of an epic story about a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the American South is hailed by New York Magazine as “one of the greatest revivals ever.”
With a soul-raising score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, THE COLOR PURPLE gives an exhilarating new spirit to this Pulitzer Prize-winning story, based on Alice Walker’s 1982 novel and the 1985 Warner Brothers motion picture.
“A spiritually transcendent theatricalization of the tale that had me silently shouting ‘hallelujah’ and ‘amen.’ – Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times
