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."

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...More star wattage would have helped this touring production, which heads after its run at the Pantages to the Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa. But Doyle's cunning renovation, which distills the essence of Walker's beloved book in this trimmed-down musical revival, is still an impressive sight."

Broadway World - Highly Recommended

"...Director John Doyle's Tony Award-winning reinvention of the musical - which took Broadway by storm in 2015 - rings like a clarion call to arms for every woman who's ever been violated, abused, or otherwise kept down by a man, and, on opening night, the powerful women heading the cast proved themselves more than ready to lead the charge."

Stage Scene LA - Recommended

"...Itís also amazing that the story resonates given the musicalís time-span of 40 years. The Color Purple remains a problematic show on paper; this production all but smooths out the wrinkles."
