The Tennessee Theatre is proud to announce that The Color Purple, The Musical about Love, will play as part of the Broadway at the Tennessee series, February 18th through 20th, for five performances only.

This production of The Color Purple is the next phase in the life of the ground-breaking Broadway hit musical produced by Scott Sanders. The original Broadway musical opened on December 1, 2005, and was nominated for 11 Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The Color Purple ran for over two years on Broadway followed by a three year First National Tour.

It is the unforgettable and inspiring story of a woman named Celie, who finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world. With a joyous, GRAMMY-nominated score featuring gospel, jazz, pop and the blues, The Color Purple is about hope and the healing power of love.
