The Color Purple Bermuda February 2017

A spokesperson said, “We’re extra excited about this reprise performance as The Color Purple officially ended its NY Broadway run on 8th January 2017. There is no other production company in the area/region which has the rights to perform this show again.

“As such, we’re humbled to be granted the licensing rights for the show again; and this provides a unique opportunity for Bermuda to showcase our island’s amazing talent and this phenomenal production to the public for one final weekend.”

“The Color Purple is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman who, through love, finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world.

“This musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel [and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film] introduces the audience to Celie, a downtrodden young woman whose personal awakening over the course of 40 years forms the arc of this epic story.

“With a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues, The Color Purple is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life.

“The show features an all-star Bermudian cast, including Tsilala Brock, who will star in the lead role of Celie.

“The creative team for this production features direction by Michael McFadden, who was responsible for producing the US National Tour of The Color Purple.

“Tickets for The Color Purple begin at $70 for general admission and $125 for patrons. Tickets are now available and can be purchased online at ptix.bm/tcp, by calling 278-1500, or in person at Ruth Seaton James box office.”
