With a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, this stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie, as she journeys from childhood through joy and despair, anguish and hope to discover the power of love and life.
John Doyle’s critically acclaimed production opened in summer 2013 in London at the Menier Chocolate Factory. Charles Spencer of The Telegraph said The Color Purple, “blows the roof off the theatre,” and Libby Purvess of The Times says, “It rocks the house. Never was there such stamping, cheering, hooting, roaring and whistling.” And Mark Shenton of The Stage called the production “A revelation. Something truly extraordinary.”
