Orin Wolf announces the development of a new stage adaptation of Prince’s legendary film and album, PURPLE RAIN. Based on the original screenplay by Albert Magnoli and William Blinn, this stage adaptation will feature a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Branden Jacobs-Jenkins; music and lyrics by Prince; and direction by Tony Award-nominee Lileana Blain-Cruz.  Additional production details and timing will be announced in the coming months.


“It's been almost 40 years since Prince’s legendary film, PURPLE RAIN, took the world by storm and we can’t think of a more fitting tribute than to honor Prince and the PURPLE RAIN legacy with this stage adaptation of the beloved story,” said L Londell McMillan, Chairman of The NorthStar Group, and Larry Mestel, Founder & CEO of Primary Wave Music. “We are thrilled with our Broadway partners and creative team, who are bringing a theatricality to the film’s original fictional story. We can’t wait for a new generation to discover PURPLE RAIN and for lovers of the original film and album to experience its power once again, this time live.”
