UPCOMING: The Color Purple, November 7-12, 2017 at the Fisher Theatre, Detroit
*Disclosure: I have an ongoing relationship with the Fisher Theatre and Broadway on Detroit. The opinions expressed here, however, are my own.

The Color Purple will be playing in Detroit at the Fisher Theater this November, and I'm excited to see it—I haven't seen it before, or read the book, but I've heard good things about them. The movie version was actually Oprah's feature film debut, as well.

Tickets are available starting September 10th—see below for information.

About the musical:
Direct from Broadway, THE COLOR PURPLE is the Tony Award-winning revival of the truly remarkable musical adapted from Alice Walker’s best-selling novel. Directed by Tony winner John Doyle (Sweeney Todd and The Color Purple), the critically acclaimed revival will come to Detroit from November 7 – 12 as part of a North American tour. Tickets start at $39 and go on sale Sunday, September 10 at all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at 1-800-982-2787 and online at www.broadwayindetroit.com or www.ticketmaster.com. Starting Monday, September 11, tickets will also be available for purchase at The Fisher Theatre Box Office.

This revival of THE COLOR PURPLE won two Tony Awards in 2016, including Best Revival of a Musical and two Drama Desk Awards including Outstanding Revival of a Musical. THE COLOR PURPLE revival also won the 2017 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.

Hailed as “a direct hit to the heart” (The Hollywood Reporter), this joyous American classic conquered Broadway in an all-new "ravishingly reconceived production that is a glory to behold” (The New York Times) directed by Tony winner John Doyle.

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.

Don’t miss this stunning re-imagining of an epic story about a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the American South. The musical sensation that New York Magazine calls “one of the greatest revivals ever.” Experience the exhilarating power of this Tony-winning triumph!
