great production with solid and convincing performances from the entire cast. This was a well-staged show--all around. Some of the subject material was a bit coarse, so I'd not recommend the show for children. I was seated behind an...continued

I admit I wasn't sure what to expect of this musical, and went in with a skeptic's view. After watching this show, listening to the powerful and soulful voices, and drinking in the sets and dancing - I'm a believer! Excellent production! I would...continued

The singing and dancing was awesome. The cast were all very talented. The seats were great, I don't remember the last time I had better. We even got a parking spot right outside the theatre.

This was my first time watching The Color Purple and I loved it! I thought this would be more of a serious musical, so I was definitely pleased to get some good laughs at out. The singing and acting were amazing...well cast. I'd highly...continued

Very good performance. Actors were very good. Easy to follow play and close enough to book and movie that I could follow what was going on. HELL NO and PUSH THE BUTTON are great songs! First act a bit too long, second act a bit slow.

This production was well done and well casted! This was my second time seeing this play and it was just as good as the first time. I would suggest purchasing the soundtrack to continue the fun well after the curtain closes!

I have been to many shows in my lifetime, and this one was by far one of the best! The singing, dancing, and acting were all phenomenal. I was blown away by the extremely talented cast and how believable they made the story. There were moments...continued

It was a good show. The cast had great voices and the acting was pretty good. I had to get over the fact that is was not going to be exactly like the movie. Once I did that, I enjoyed it more

Loved it!
What a big surprise! The talent was excellent. We attend alot of shows on Broadway and this was as good as any New York show. Much better than Spider Man. Support the theatre in D.C.

A very uplifting musical, despite the difficult subject content (child abuse, spouse abuse) Good cast with strong voices. Would highly recommend.
