Oprah Winfrey presents The Color Purple

Theatre : Cadillac Palace Theatre, Chicago Illinois
Dates : April 17, 2007 - September 30, 2007

 
 

Jeannette Bayardelle and Felicia P. Fields from the New York production join Destiny's Child's Michelle Williams, Rufus Bonds, Jr. from Disney's The Lion King and LaToya London of American Idol in the Chicago premiere of Oprah Winfrey presents THE COLOR PURPLE.

From the classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker, and the moving film by Steven Spielberg, comes a soul-stirring new musical and landmark Broadway event.

THE COLOR PURPLE is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman who - through love - finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world. Set to a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, THE COLOR PURPLE is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.

Directed by Gary Griffin, this Broadway show is adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Marsha Norman, with music and lyrics by Grammy Award winners Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray and choreography by Donald Byrd.
