About The Color Purple - NYC

Get ready to be inspired!

This unforgettable and intensely moving new production mesmerized audiences when it premiered at London's acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory.

Now this American classic comes to Broadway with a powerhouse cast including Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls), the celebrated London star Cynthia Erivo, who will recreate her electrifying performance as Celie, along with Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black).

This breathtakingly emotional show is based on the novel written by Alice Walker. Travel back in time and meet Celie, a young black girl born into poverty and segregation in the deep American South between the wars. Her fate is overshadowed by violence and loss until she meets the glamorous singer Shug Avery. The two very different women start to bond and step by step Celie discovers the power and joy of her own spirit and learns to take charge of her own life.

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.
