‘The Color Purple’ at The Fox, Oct. 24-29
“The Color Purple,” the two-time Tony Award-winner, including Best Revival of a Musical, will be returning to Atlanta this month at The Fox. The original Broadway production, which ran from 2005 through 2008, earned 11 Tony Award nominations. The Broadway revival opened in late 2015 and ran through early 2017, winning two 2016 Tony Awards—including Best Revival of a Musical. The original Broadway-bound musical began its first run in 2004 in Atlanta at the Alliance Theatre.
Based on the 1982 novel by Alice Walker, the show follows the journey of Celie, an African-American woman in the American South from the early to mid-20th century. Book by Marsha Norman and music and lyrics by Stephen Bray, Brenda Russell, and Allee Willis, “The Color Purple” runs Oct. 24-29 at the Fox Theatre.
