Take off 20% off tickets to the award-winning musical of The Color Purple at the Winspear Opera House coming this January during its short run. Tickets have gone on sale to this powerful production of an iconic story and thanks to DFW on The Cheap you can save money on your seats.

Alice Walker’s 1982 Pulitzer prize-winning novel is about Celie, an African-American woman in the American South during the early 1900s. Celie must struggle through abusive relationships, lost family, and her spirituality. Spielberg adapted the novel to a film in 1985, and in 2005 was made into a Broadway musical.

The Color Purple Musical features a joyous Grammy-winning score of jazz, ragtime, gospel, and blues. It has earned 15 Tony award nominations including the 2016 win for “Best Revival of a Musical.”  The New York Times has called The Color Purple Musical “ravishingly reconceived production that is a glory to behold.”
