Watch Jennifer Hudson Sing ‘The Color Purple’ Musical Theme

Curated by

 

Jennifer Hudson and Cynthia Erivo perform an exclusive version of the title song in our newest music video. Jennifer Hudson is teasing her Broadway debut with a number from The Color Purple. The musical production will begin previews on Nov. 9 before its Dec. 10 opening at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre.

 

 

  • The hit stripped-down version, which was produced by London’s Menier Chocolate Factory in summer 2013 and starred Erivo, is a departure from the splashy original $10 million show, which debuted a decade ago and ran for a little over two years.
  • The revival, which opens in December, features a minimal, stripped-down set — on display in the video — allowing the music and characters to be the focus of the musical.
  • The musical’s book is by playwright Marsha Norman, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Alice Walker and the 1985 Steven Spielberg film that starred Whoopi Goldberg and Winfrey.
