THE COLOR PURPLE is the 2016 Tony Award® winner for Best Musical Revival! Hailed as “a direct hit to the heart” (The Hollywood Reporter), this joyous American classic, directed by Tony winner John Doyle, has conquered Broadway in an all-new “ravishingly reconceived production that is a glory to behold” (The New York Times). This stunning re-imagining of an epic story about a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the American South is hailed by New York Magazine as “one of the greatest revivals ever.”

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, based on Alice Walker’s 1982 novel and the 1985 Warner Brothers motion picture.
