Do NOT Miss This Show!

My daughter and I have just returned from musical adaptation of The Color Purple.  I've been to a LOT of musicals, but never to one at which I've both been moved to tears AND laughed so hard I could barely breathe!

We were blown away by the incredible singing and acting talent of the touring company, the athleticism of the dancers that brought Africa to life in the main character's mind and ours, the power of the story.  Book, movie, and musical are all so different from one another, yet all so rich and compelling in their own ways.

GO AND SEE IT!  It's a journey unlike any other. (Click on the third video down on this page to get a "feel" for what this show inspires.)
