“A musical with heart, spirit and soul” The Guardian
“A glorious, immensely moving celebration of triumph over adversity” The Stage

Based on the Pulitzer prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize and Tony award-winner Marsha Norman, The Color Purple tells 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.

Winner of Best Regional Production (whatsonstage awards), the critically acclaimed Made at Curve and Birmingham Hippodrome production is a moving and soul-raising family chronicle set in racially divided southern America in the 1900s. As the years go by, Celie becomes resigned to her unfortunate lot in life, but when newcomers Sofia and Shug start to shake things up, she begins to question her world; and understand that there must be more to life.

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.
