Everyone Has To See "The Color Purple Musical"
My dream has finally come true-one of the them anyway. I have prayed for this momment for years. I remember watching The Color Purple for the first time, when I was 9 years old, and though much of the dialouge went over my head, something deep inside me connected to it. Maybe it was the conncetion that I felt, and still feel towards my ancestors. Maybe it was the message that love is endless, and no matter how hard you try you cant break the human spirit. I have seen The Color Purple more times then I can remember, and now thanks to Oprah Winfrey, Scott Sanders, Roy Furman, and Quincy Jones this wonderul film is comming to Broadway. Opening night for "The Color Purple" will be on December 1st 2005. Oprah premiered a sample of the production on her show Friday, November 11,2005. It was truly an amazing experience just watching it on T.V., but for me that wont be enough. I am personally going NYC to see this show live, and I encourage ALL to do the same. Alot of great productions come and leave Broadway without a whisper of excitement. We owe it to ourselves to see that this production remains on Broadway for years to come. As Ceily says in this goose bump momment from the show" Rising, like the sun is the hope that sets us free, Your heartbeat, makes my heartbeat, when we share love...Lke a plate of corn, like the honey bee, like a waterfall on a part of me. Like the Color Purple, where does it come from?? Now my eyes are open...Look what God has done!" http://colorpurple.com/downloads/The_Color_Purple-The_Color_Purple.mp3 (Music)
