KM appears in the Curve, Leicester production of The Color Purple, streaming now.
Curve at Home continues this February with an intimate, bold and beautiful new digital version of our WhatsOnStage Award-winning production The Color Purple, streaming for three weeks only in association with Birmingham Hippodrome.
Building on the success of their first major stream Sunset Boulevard – at Home (‘A game changer’, The Telegraph), The Color Purple has been especially created for you to watch at home. Marsha Norman’s poetic and powerful script along with the magnificent songs by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray celebrate life, love and the strength to stand up for who you are and what you believe in. This unforgettable story set in racially divided Southern America is staged by the team behind the 2019 production – Director Tinuke Craig, Musical Director Alex Parker and Choreographer Mark Smith.
Drawing inspiration from jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, a band of incredible musicians will combine with the company’s soulful vocals in bringing the score to life, including Push Da Button, Too Beautiful for Words and I’m Here.
Recorded in their transformed auditorium and fully lit using their state-of-the-art lighting rig, book now for your chance to see Alice Walker’s seminal novel as you’ve never seen it before.
