The touring production is based on the 2013 revival of the musical by Marsha Norman, Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker.

The production debuted at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory before transferring to Broadway in November 2015 at the Bernard B.

“The Color Purple” is about a young woman named Celie, who suffers extreme physical, mental and sexual abuse from the men in her life, but through the examples and support of other women, manages to assert her independence and take control of her life.
