The Color Purple

The Youngstown Playhouse and DeYor Performing Arts Center will return to live theatre with a co-production of The Color Purple. Directed by Trevail Maurice Smith and featuring musicians from Youngstown, the production will run September 24–October 3, 2021 at Edward W. Powers Auditorium.

Winner of the 2016 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical, The Color Purple chronicles the inspiring story of Celie, a young Black woman who triumphs over a lifetime of oppression through a personal awakening of love, hope, and joy. Featuring an exhilarating score replete with jazz, ragtime, gospel, and blues, The Color Purple is adapted from Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the 1985 film by Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Marsha Norman, with music and lyrics by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray.

Performances are September 24, 25, October 1, & 2, at 7:30pm and September 26 & October 3, at 2:30pm. For tickets, visit the DeYor Performing Arts Center website.
