The Color Purple, currently running at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre, will close January 8, 2017. The production, which earned the 2016 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, will have played Broadway for 14 months when it closes.
The show, starring Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo in her Broadway debut, earned rave reviews when it opened on Broadway last December. Tony nominee Danielle Brooks (Orange is the New Black) co-starred and Jennifer Hudson, Heather Headley, and Jennifer Holliday all played the role of Shug during the show’s run.
The Color Purple features a book by Marsha Norman, lyrics by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray and music by Russell and Willis. Based on the novel by Alice Walker, the tuner tells the story of Celie, a woman who, through love, finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discovers her voice in the world.
