The Phoenix team was elated to have reunited the original Broadway team that includes Director Gary Griffin, Choreographer Donald Byrd, Scenic Designer John Lee Beatty, Costume Designer Paul Tazewell and Lighting Designer Brian MacDevitt to craft a fresh new take on this soul-stirring musical based on the classic Pulitzer-Prize winning novel by Alice Walker.
Critics have called THE COLOR PURPLE “a roof-raising story of triumph” and “one of the most uplifting and thrilling nights spent in any theatre.” The Phoenix Entertainment tour launched its first season on the road at Omaha’s fabulous Orpheum Theatre on March 16th, 2010 to glowing reviews. THE COLOR PURPLE played another amazing chapter through the heartland of America in 2011-2012, including the grand opening of the all new Smith Center for the Performing Arts in Las Vegas where critics and crowds alike marveled at this once in a lifetime production.
