28 Jun The Color Purple
The Color Purple is a broadway show based on the book by Alice Walker. The show is the epic tale of 40-years in the life of a family in rural Georgia. At its center is fourteen-year-old Celie. When Celie is forced by her abusive father to marry a cruel farmer, called “Mister,” she is separated from all that she loves. Ultimately, Celie conquers the odds to find her voice and her strength, coming into her own. Featuring a vibrant score, The Color Purple, celebrates the healing power of love and the importance of a zest for life. Each song was so powerful that it gave me goose bumps. My favorite song is called “I curse you” and it’s sung by the protagonist Celie. The lyrics are short but so powerful.
