Posted on: April 17, 2018


Tempe events include THE COLOR PURPLE at ASU Gammage, April 17-22, 2018.

THE COLOR PURPLE is the 2016 Tony Award® winner for Best Musical Revival. With a soul-raising score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, THE COLOR PURPLE gives an exhilarating new spirit to the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker. Called “one of the greatest revivals ever” by New York Magazine, this stunning musical follows Celie, a young African-American woman and her journey to love and triumph in the American South. Over a span of 40 years she survives abuse and bigotry, finding love and companionship anywhere she can.   Celie perseveres through all of her trials, holding on to her dream of one day being reunited with her sister in Africa.
