The Color Purple is an emotionally delightful musical. Here is a review from someone who has never seen the movie before even. You can see this show and many more at the Straz Center in Tampa. While I was able to attend this show at no cost to me, all opinions are 100% my own.
The Color Purple Review – Experience It At the Straz Center in Tampa
Confession. I never saw the movie The Color Purple. When I was offered the chance to see the performance at the Straz Center here in Tampa, I jumped at the opportunity because I love the Straz and I feel that live performances transport me to another magical place that movies and social media just can’t. I wasn’t ready for the emotional journey that The Color Purple put me on.
First of all, the cast was just amazing. I was in awe from the moment the show started. I found myself wiping tears from my cheeks when I didn’t even realize I was crying, I found myself laughing, clapping and “Woohoo-ing” at various points in the show, and when it ended, I was completely amazed that I had been sitting for over two hours.
I loved it. I loved the story, I loved the emotions, I loved the successes, I loved the love stories, I loved it all. If you are looking for a night that will take you to a new place that will leave you upset, happy, and loving that you are at the theater that night – this musical is for you. The Color Purple Musical is definitely a performance that I would see again! Have you seen it before? No? What are you waiting for?!
