This new production started life at London's acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory, where critics hailed it as "a revelation" (Mark Shenton, The Stage). Now this American classic comes to Broadway with a powerhouse cast including celebrated London star Cynthia Erivo, who will recreate her electrifying performance as Celie, along with Orange is the New Black's Danielle Brooks.
With a soul-raising score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, The Color Purple gives an exhilarating new spirit to this Pulitzer Prize-winning story.
