You know that Broadway is known for its variety of amazing plays and musicals, so you do not want to miss your chance to see one while you are visiting New York City. With so many to choose from, you may need some help on deciding which one to see and lucky for you, you have Ticketmomma.com here to help. We suggest that you go and check out The Color Purple. This is a must see show on Broadway and this is one show that you will not soon forget.

The musical The Color Purple was written by Marsha Norman and the lyrics and music were a collaboration of Alle Willis, Stephen Bray and Brenda Russell. It is based off of the 1993, Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Color Purple, by Alice Walker. There is also a movie of the same title that stars Oprah Winfrey. The first production of The Color Purple was in 2004, when it premiered in Atlanta, Georgia's the Alliance Theatre. It received rave reviews and in December of 2005, The Color Purple moved up to Broadway to begin an impressive run that earned the musical 11 Tony Award nominations. The production can be seen at the Broadway Theatre in New York City and you can also catch the musical on tour in the United States. There is also a production in Vienna and London.

The Color Purple is set in an old town in Georgia, sometime in the year 1909. We meet Celie and Nettie, two sisters who are playing a game and singing in their front yard. It is a Sunday and the family is getting ready to go to church. One thing to note before we move on is that Celie is pregnant, for the second time and she is only 14 years old. While at church, the Celie starts to have contractions and she has her baby right there at church. Her father, Pa, is not happy about this and grabs the newborn from Celie and says that he is going to take care of the baby, just like he did with the previous one. Pa tells Celie that she is to say nothing about this to anyone.

As some time passes, Pa decides that it is time for Celie to marry and he hands her over to one of the town's farmers, Mister. Mister takes Celie as his wife and expects her to take care of his children and many of the farm duties. Nettie misses her sister and decides that she is going to pay her a visit at Mister's farm. Mister does not take too kindly to Nettie's interruption and sends her off in a hurry, but Nettie manages to promise Celie that she will write to her. Mister is having none of this and forbids Celie to receive mail, or go to the mailbox for that matter.

Times are hard for Celie at Mister's farm, but that all changes when Mister's longstanding love interest, Shug Avery, arrives at the farm. Shug is not doing so well and Mister allows her to come back to the farm where Celie will help her get back into shape. As Celie helps Shug, they become attached to each other and become friends. Shug discovers a letter and gives it to Celie. Celie immediately knows that it is from her sister Nettie who is now in Africa with the people who adopted her babies.

This is a great story about a family trying to make it through the tough times in Georgia just after the turn of the century. It is a heart-warming story that you will thoroughly enjoy.
