The Color Purple is an unforgettable story of enduring love and triumph over adversity. With a fresh, joyous score of jazz,
ragtime, gospel and blues, this stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie, as she journeys from childhood through
joy and despair, anguish and hope to discover the power of love and life.

Oscar®, Golden Globe® and Grammy® winner Jennifer Hudson (Dreamgirls) has dazzled the world with her matchless talent. This fall, she makes her long-awaited Broadway debut as the sultry Shug Avery in the joyous and triumphant musical The Color Purple.

This unforgettable and intensely moving new production mesmerized audiences when it premiered at London's acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory, where critics hailed it as "a revelation" (Mark Shenton, The Stage). Now, this American classic comes to Broadway with a powerhouse cast including celebrated London star Cynthia Erivo, who will recreate her electrifying performance as Celie, along with "Orange is the New Black" star Danielle Brooks.

With a soul-raising score of jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, The Color Purple gives an exhilarating new spirit to this Pulitzer Prize-winning story.
