“The Color Purple” will leave theatergoers at a loss for words. With strong vocalists, a dark plot, and a beautiful ending of finding self-love, what isn’t there to love?

The national tour is in Boston at the Boch Center / Shubert Theatre from Nov. 21 to Dec. 3, 2017. 

The story takes place in Georgia in the early 1900s following the protagonist Celie (Adrianna Hicks) who is sent to marry an abusive farm owner (Gavin Gregory) and has to leave her sister, Nettie (N’Jameh Camara). In the following years, the story breaks off track from Celie to show the story of the other characters and their own struggles with their husbands and self worth.

An experience that will enrapture audiences alike,“The Color Purple” will have the audience end the show with a standing ovation. Though, with risqué scenes, it would be best for people who are who are adolescents or older, preferably over the age of 13.

Opening night at the Shubert Theatre was a beautifully executed performance that is absolutely worth seeing — especially if anybody is interested in seeing women fighting against being abused and being able to love themselves through all the struggle they went through.
