I got to see The Color Purple on Broadway on Feb. 14, 2006, a couple of months after its opening. I was on my trip to see R., and decided that this would be a good way for a single girl to spend Valentine’s Day in NYC.
Sitting 4th-row-center was a wonderful experience. You felt a part of the story. The actors were so close you could almost touch them. One could see all the members of the orchestra. It was a beautiful night.
Anyway…the Broadway production ends its run tomorrow. I feel so blessed to have seen it early in its run. If you didn’t get to see if on Broadway, maybe you can see the traveling show. I highly recommend it.
