About The Color Purple
THE COLOR PURPLE is based on the Pulitzer prize winning novel The Color Purple by Alice Walker and classic hit movie of the same name.
The Color Purple is a moving family chronicle following the inspirational Celie, as she journeys from childhood through joy and despair, anguish and hope to discover the power of love and life.
With a fresh, exuberant score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, this European premiere of The Color Purple is directed and designed by Tony award-winner John Doyle, who previously directed Road Show at the Menier Chocolate Factory.
The Color Purple cast includes Cynthia Erivo as Celie (Sister Act: The Musical – UK tour, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg - Gielgud), Nicola Hughes as Shug (Porgy & Bess – Savoy – Olivier nomination for Best Actress in a Musical), Adebayo Bolaji as Harpo (Ghost – Piccadilly) and Abiona Omonua as Nettie (Legally Blonde – Savoy, Hairspray – UK tour).
