How was your experience?
This musical greatly exceeded my expectations. The Mercury Theater is small and intimate which was a great way to see this production. I had seen Flashdance the week before and it was disappointing so I was not expecting greatness from a regional theater company. I was wrong though - the sets, the acting, the music (live), the choreography, the singing, and the staging were all fantastic. The women who played Celie and Sofia were stand-outs, just amazing. It was a truly memorable performance and I highly recommend it.
