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).
