Boston still talking about The Color Purple musical


The Color Purple musical  left Boston a few days ago and is on its way to another venue now.

Here’s what some people had to say who saw it.

“ was amazing and Im glad that they are involved with the Black community. I know I got a notice that the YPN would be having a The Color Purple night and they would be going early and meeting that cast (something I would have loved to do), but all in all that show was AMAZING, and…My friend and I had a really enjoyable evening.

“… it was such a wonderful show, my mom and I enjoyed it was such a great musical. I think it will do very well here in Boston there is a buzz already.”

“It was great. daughter and her friend says the seats were great and the play was ‘FANTASTIC'”

Our visit to the theater last night was a triple treat. We saw a terrific performance of a fabulous show. I got to spend the entire Fathers’ Day with my first-born. And the piece de resistance: Ti and I sat next to a fascinating and accomplished actress, Miquel Brown, who is in town shooting a film.


Despite the heavy storyline, the musical is full of life, light, and humor; I didn’t expect to laugh and be moved as much as I was. The entire cast was great and presented solid singing, dancing, and acting, although the woman who plays Sophie stole the show.


  1. Great SHOW!!!1 The talent was incredible. I especially liked how those actors had already played those roles AND were many were nominated for them. It was truly a treat, as I had NEVER seen any production before. The Wang is overdone, but hey, the show was amazing!
