North American Tour of ‘The Color Purple’ Announced

Revival to Play Oct. 19-20 at PGCC Center for Performing Arts

Producers announced this week the 2019-20 North American tour of the Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of “The Color Purple.”

The tour will visit more than 30 cities, including Largo, Md., at Prince George’s Community College Center for Performing Arts on Oct. 19. Tickets start at $65.

Based on the Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the Warner Bros./Amblin Entertainment motion picture, “The Color Purple” is adapted for the stage by Tony and Pulitzer winner Marsha Norman with music and lyrics by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray.

The revival opened to great acclaim in summer 2013 at London’s Menier Chocolate Factory, followed by a Broadway bow on Nov. 10, 2015, at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

“The Color Purple,” which went on to win two 2016 Tony Awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, two Drama Desk Awards, the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album and a Daytime Emmy, played 483 performances on Broadway before closing on Jan. 8, 2017.
