November 2, 2009, (Durham, NC)- The musical of love, The Color Purple, is a soul-stirring musical based on the classic Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and the moving film by Steven Spielberg. It is the unforgettable and inspiring story of a woman named Celie, who finds her unique voice in the world. Due to the overwhelming success of The Color Purple this past May, The Color Purple returns to DPAC by popular demand on May 25-30, 2010.

Nominated for eleven Tony® Awards, The Color Purple is a landmark theatrical event, a celebration of love, and a Broadway phenomenon. With a joyous GRAMMY®- nominated score featuring jazz, gospel and blues, The Color Purple is capturing the hearts of young and old, and uniting audiences in a community of joy.

“After a sold out week of Oprah Winfrey’s The Color Purple at DPAC last May, we are thrilled to have landed the opportunity to present The Color Purple again and unite audiences all over the Triangle once more for the highly requested Broadway return engagement,” states Rachel Gragg, Assistant Director of Marketing and PR.

Independent Weekly gave The Color Purple four stars for last year’s SunTrust Broadway series DPAC Performance. “The movement throughout is freighted with emotional information, and takes the show beyond the standards for musicals,” claims Kate Dobbs Ariail, from The Independent Weekly.
