Date & Time

Originally performed as a workshop experience by Alliance Theatre, The Color Purple was produced in mid 2004 in Atlanta, Georgia. In September, the theatre staged the world premiere of the musical while getting help for special arrangements from Scott Sanders and Creative Battery Productions. For the performance in Atlanta, the role of Celia was played by La Chanze, Sofia by Felicia P. Fields, Nettie by Saycon Sengbloh, Shug by Adriane Lenox and Mister as Kingsley Leggs. The play was staged by Gary Griffin, with sound, costumes, scenic design and lighting by Jon Weston, Paul Tazewell, John Lee Beatty and Brian MacDevitt, respectively.

In 2005, The Color Purple debuted on Broadway in Manhattan, at The Broadway Theatre. With Scott Sanders, Oprah Winfrey and Quincy Jones as the producers, Gary Griffins as the director, Donald Byrd as the choreographer, and Linda Twine as the musical director, the show ran till early 2008, performing nine hundred and ten times alongside thirty previews. The Broadway production became a huge success making back the investment of eleven million dollars in its initial year and accumulating a total of hundred and three million within the next few years.  This production included Renee Elise Goldsberry playing Nettie, Elisabeth Withers-Mendes playing Shug Avery, Krishna Marcano playing Squeek alongside the casting from the previous staging. Since then, the character of Celia has been portrayed by Kenita R. Miller, Jeannette Bayardelle and from 2007-early 2008, by Fantasia Barrino.

The Color Purple has been undertaken by several productions including that of Chicago in 2007, and Vienna in 2011, alongside touring productions performing across the USA twice in 2007 and 2010, and a third time in 2012. The musical’s first national tour started in April 2007, beginning with extended performances in Chicago at Cadillac Palace Theatre. The show received unsurpassed and unexpected success that extended its running four more weeks, producing major profits that brought in a million dollar a week halfway into the initial engagement. As the starting place, Chicago turned out to be quite notable since Oprah Winfrey and Felicia Fields were Chicago residents. Owing to several other connections with Chicago, the show’s premiere made possible a star-studded opening that included people like Roger Ebert, R. Kelly,  Jesse Jackson, and Richard M. Daley. A third tour of the show that began in January 2012 in Florence, covers Pennsylvania, Alabama, Nevada and many more places.

In 2006, The Color Purple won a Tony Award for Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Musical, which went to La Chanze. Its other Tony-nominations included those for choreography, scenic designs, costume design and lighting designs. The same year, the musical received two nominations from Theatre World Awards, one for Elisabeth Withers-Mendes and the other for Felicia P. Fields, both of which were won. In 2007, the show was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Musical Show Album. The same year it won another Theatre World Award which went to Fantasia Barrino. The Color Purple tickets bring you a musical that is filled with themes of feminism , black oppression, love and crime, all of which have been presented in a fabric of interwoven multi-symbolic representations, that leave everyone crying and laughing at the same time.
