Building on the success of our first major stream Sunset Boulevard – at Home (‘A game changer’, The Telegraph), The Color Purple has been especially created for you to watch at home. This unforgettable story set in racially divided Southern America is staged by the team behind our 2019 production – Director Tinuke Craig, Musical Director Alex Parker and Choreographer Mark Smith – and celebrates life, love and the strength to stand up for who you are and what you believe in.
T’Shan Williams returns to lead our magnificent original company as our courageous heroine Celie, with Danielle Fiamanya
(Winner – The Stage Debut Awards 2019) reprising her role as Celie’s Sister, Nettie. Carly Mercedes Dyer joins the cast as the vivacious Shug Avery, following her acclaimed performance as Anita in our 2019 Made at Curve production of West Side Story.
Drawing inspiration from jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, a band of incredible musicians will combine with the company’s soulful vocals in bringing the score to life, including Push Da Button, Too Beautiful for Words and I’m Here.
