The Color Purple

THE COLOR PURPLE is an inspiring family saga that tells the unforgettable story of a woman who, through love, finds the strength to triumph over adversity and discover her unique voice in the world. This musical adaptation of Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel (and the popular 1985 Steven Spielberg film) spotlights Celie, a downtrodden young woman whose personal awakening over the course of 40 years forms the arc of this epic story. With a joyous score featuring jazz, ragtime, gospel, African music and blues,THE COLOR PURPLE is a story of hope, a testament to the healing power of love and a celebration of life. With a book by Marsha Norman and music and lyrics by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray, THE COLOR PURPLE premiered at the Alliance Theatre Company in Atlanta, Georgia and opened on Broadway on November 1, 2005. It was nominated for eleven 2006 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Original Score. The London off-West End production opened on Broadway in 2015, winning the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

Venue Information

Since 1964, The Barn Dinner Theatre has been dedicated to providing a quality dining experience along with a Broadway-style performance, or as we like to call it... Dinnertainment. We are proud to be the oldest continually operating dinner theatre in the United States. Your evening will begin with our Southern-style buffet which features entrees such as roast beef and baked chicken coupled with seasonal Southern side dishes. There will be several cold bar items to choose from, as well as desert options available.  Our friendly waitstaff will take your beverage orders from your table and assist you with any additional needs. After dinner the buffet will be cleared so that our “magic stage” can take its place in the center of the theatre for your performance to begin. The full Dinnertainment experience will last approximately 3.5 - 4 hours from the time you are seated until the final bows are given. 

Parking

The Barn Dinner Theatre has ample free parking for all patrons in attendance along with several designated spots for motorcoaches.
