The Color Purple

February 11 @ 7:30 pm

$12 – $35

This triumphant musical adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of human fortitude, redemption, and love tells the story of a teenage Celie, torn from her beloved sister and forced into an abusive marriage.

Over the next forty years, while Celie encounters repression, despair, and heartbreak, she also discovers hope in a group of friends who inspire her to find her voice, discover her beauty and change her life. Nominated for 11 Tony Awards® and featuring a soaring score of jazz, gospel, blues and ragtime, The Color Purple brilliantly illuminates the lives of Southern Black women in breathtaking scope.
