The Color Purple The Musical

Follow the story of courageous heroine Celie as she journeys through joy, despair, anguish and hope in her own personal awakening to discover her unique voice in the world.

With a profoundly evocative score by Grammy award-winners Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray and drawing inspiration from jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, this landmark musical celebrates life, love and the strength to stand up for who you are and what you believe in.

“A musical with heart, spirit and soul” The Guardian

This moving and soul-raising family chronicle is set in racially divided southern America in the 1900s. As the years go by, abused and oppressed Celie becomes resigned to her unfortunate lot in life. But when her friendship with fiercely independent Sofia and love affair with glamourous singer Shug start to shake things up, she begins to question her world; and understand that there must be more to life.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winner Marsha Norman, this critically acclaimed Made at Curve and Birmingham Hippodrome production won Best Regional Production (whatsonstage awards).
