Experience the joy of humanity in this musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s enduring tale of the American South. Told she was worthless, Celie discovers her strength and rises above indignity with grace. With quiet resolve, this unlikely heroine lifts up others – even those who tried to take everything from her. Journey with Celie as she forges improbable friendships, dares to love and inspires those around her with humility and compassion. Soaring on the notes of a soul-raising Grammy-winning score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, 
The Color Purple will leave you breathless.
