"The Color Purple"

Dec. 29-Jan. 3
Clowes Hall

The Broadway in Indianapolis subscription season gets a late start, but from here on, the touring shows roll steadily into town. First up is the Oprah Winfrey-produced/endorsed musical version of Alice Walker’s acclaimed novel. Leading the cast is Kenita R. Miller, who has been on my want-to-see-list since I saw her in a YouTube clip from the musical “Dessa Rose” (don’t search it unless you are ready to weep). Also in the company, original cast member (and Tony nominee) Felicia P. Fields and season three “American Idol” semi-finalist Latoya London.
As with the rest of the Broadway in Indianapolis subscription series, I’ll be hosting talk back sessions with cast and crew after the Wednesday night performance. Have your questions ready. Details here. .
