Royalty Comes to DC
It was a hit on Broadway bringing in a diverse audience of people of color to the theater, many for the first time, to experience the stage production of the book, by Alice Walker and film by Steven Spielberg that have become American classics. Tonight, the touring company of The Color Purple the Musical, make their Washington, DC debut in the Opera House of the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. National recording artist and past American Idol winner Fantasia stars as the main character Celie in most performances of the six week DC run. Call to purchase tickets and ask if Fantasia will be appearing in the performance you wish to attend before you buy if you absolutely want to see her – otherwise buy a ticket for any performance and enjoy a wonderfully moving show.
