The performance was truly astounding. The singing and acting were definitely of the highest caliber. Although I found it hard to catch all the words to the songs and even the dialogue, it didn't matter. I understood enough of the story for the...continued

Absolutely magnificent!!! The singing and performances were first class. Petite little Celie has an amazing and powerful voice in addition to being an excellent actress. My daughter and I highly recommend seeing The Color Purple. The seats were ok.

The show was spectacular. The only issue I had was difficulty in making out the words. I need to get the lyrics! Still, great music, amazing performers, and a moving story.

The view of the right side of the stage from the first couple of rows on the right mezzanine is obstructed view for this production. Singing and dancing great. The theater was not full - some opportunity to change seats.

I really enjoyed myself. I took my friend for her birthday and she equally enjoyed the play. It was a great way to spend a Wednesday evening and break away from the day to day routine. Thank you goldstar and I look forward to the wonderful deals...continued

I saw the Color Purple at the Wang on June 17th and thought it was incredible. I laughed and cried. It's extremely moving. Kenita Miller, who plays Celia, is absolutely amazing -- an astounding voice and wonderful actress.

I thought the play was better then the movie, although I loved the movie. The lyrics in the songs were so heart touching and there are some things you can say in song, that the spoken word just can not convey.

The men's roles in the play were...continued
