STAGEART presents THE COLOR PURPLE THE MUSICAL – 2016 Tony Award Winning Best Musical Revival!

This heartening musical of rhythm, soul, jazz and blues takes it’s audience on a journey of adversity, liberation and ultimately celebration.

From Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller and Stephen Spielberg’s Oscar-nominated film comes the Australasian premiere of this breathtaking stage musical. Spanning four decades and three continents, The Color Purple chronicles the feminist evolution of ‘Celie’ a battered and downtrodden African-American woman who endures rape, incest, domestic violence and racial abuse her entire life. This awe inspiring saga tells her unforgettable story of overcoming adversity in a heartening tale that is a testament to the healing power of love and faith.

The Color Purple celebrates life with a joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues and was nominated for eleven Tony Awards, including: Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score.

‘The Color Purple changed my life! I have always wanted as many people as possible to experience this story.’ Oprah Winfrey
