The Color Purple is a Broadway musical based upon the novel The Color Purple by Alice Walker. It features music and lyrics written by Brenda Russell, Allee Willis and Stephen Bray, with a book by Marsha Norman. As the story begins, it is Sunday morning in rural Georgia, 1909. “Po’ chil” (Poor child) Celie, 14 years old and pregnant for the second time, is playing a clapping game with her beloved sister Nettie (“Huckleberry Pie”). When she comes to church with her sister and their Pa, Celie goes into labor before the service ends (“Mysterious Ways”). Later, Pa takes Celie’s baby from her arms (“Somebody Gonna Love You”), saying he is going to get rid of it, “same as the last one,” and that she better not tell anybody except God what happened. Celie asks God for a sign, something that will let her know what is happening to her.
