      Tour Website

      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 has conquered Broadway in an all-new "ravishingly reconceived production that is a glory to behold” (The New York Times).

      With a soul-raising, Grammy®-winning score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, THE COLOR PURPLE gives an exhilarating new spirit to this Pulitzer Prize-winning story.

      Don’t miss this stunning re-imagining of an epic story about a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the American South. Experience the exhilarating power of this Tony-winning triumph that New York Magazine calls “one of the greatest revivals ever.”


      THE COLOR PURPLE is accessible and appropriate for all ages.  Standard local theatre guidelines for minimum age should apply, however if an age is needed, we said 8 & up on Broadway.


      THE COLOR PURPLE is 2 hours and 25 minutes (1 intermission).
