The Color Purple won the 2016 Tony Award for Best Musical Revival, and its production will be in DC for nearly a month this summer. The American classic has received an update from Tony-winning director John Doyle, and it features a Grammy-winning score of blues, ragtime, gospel, and jazz tunes. The Pulitzer Prize-winning story has been an important part of American literature, cinema, and theatre, so seeing this rendition of it at one of DC’s most prized venues is an experience worth seeking out.
