“The Color Purple” is on stage now at the Civic Theatre!

AshLee “PsyWrn Simone” Baskin, who plays Shug Avery and Jonathan Studdard, who plays Preacher, Ol’ Mister and works as equity and diversity liaiso at the Civic Theatre, joined us today to share what we can expect from the show.

You can see it now through October 23.

This show is the musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning story of hope and a celebration of life. The joyous jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music, and blues score sets the musical apart from the acclaimed 1985 film.
