“Bolder, brighter, deeper than ever.”  —Daily News

Don’t miss the Tony Award®-winning revival that exhilarated Broadway! With a soul-raising, Grammy®-winning score of jazz, gospel, ragtime, and blues, The Color Purple is an unforgettable and intensely moving revival of an American classic. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and Academy Award®-nominated feature film, The Color Purple leaves its mark on the soul. This joyous American classic about a young woman’s journey to love and triumph in the American South conquered Broadway in an all-new “ravishingly reconceived production that is a glory to behold” (The New York Times).


Pre-Performance Insights

Available only for the Saturday, February 1 evening performance.

The State Theatre’s Pre-Performance Insights give our Broadway Series audiences new ways to look at theater in general, as well as a richer understanding of the show itself. Led by Rutgers University theater professor Christopher Cartmill, along with special guests, these entertaining talks are sure to make an evening at the State Theatre an even more enjoyable and memorable experience.

Pre-Performance Insights take place at 7:15 before the Saturday evening performances of shows in our Broadway Series. Attendance is free of charge for ticketholders to that night’s performance; no reservation or additional ticket is required. Pre-Performance Insights take place on the second floor of State Theatre New Jersey. There is no elevator access to this space.
