The Color Purple
Book by Marsha Norman

Regional Premiere

“I’ll write you every day. Nothin’ but death will keep me from it!” This is the promise Celie’s sister makes as the girls are torn apart, setting in motion this moving chronicle of a Southern family over half a century. With a jubilant, Grammy Award-winning score including jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, The Color Purple stays true to Alice Walker’s novel about the power of unending love.
