Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel bolts joyously to life at Actor's Express with its memorable music and characters. The Color Purple
tells the story of Celie, a Southern woman in the first half of the
20th century, who stares down adversity to find strength, love and the
power of her own voice. The original
Color Purple, as you might

months on Broadway. The more intimate version, which suits the Express
space, had a 14-month Broadway run (2015-17) and won the Tony Award for
best musical revival. At AE, Latrice Pace plays Celie, with Kevin Harry
ALL TICKETS WILL BE LEFT AT WILL CALL.
Actor's Express is where you’re just as likely to see a Sondheim musical, a world premiere or one of Broadway’s most recent hits. Under the leadership of artistic director Freddie Ashley, this 28-year-old nonprofit company long favored by LGBT theatergoers, is more inclusive than ever.
