The Color Purple

Last night, I went to see The Color Purple, now for the most part I find musicals idiodic but benign. So with a tad of trepidation I went, I mean it's based on one of my all time favorite novels (the one that made me rethink God) and produced by Oprah so how bad could it be?

Well, to start off Fantasia who was supposed to play Celie, was not there and two other understudies were also filling in two of the key roles, which might explain the subpar perfomance but we paid almost $200 for those tickets. While the costumes were great, the drama just lacked power, punch and poignancy but honestly I was just happy to be out.

If you haven't read the book, skip the movie, skip the play and read the book: The Color Purple by Alice Walker

The quietly pacifist peaceful always die to make room for men who shout. Alice Walker
