The Classic Novel of Alice Walker Comes to the Cutting Edge Theater

Cutting Edge Theater in Slidell has announced the regional premiere of The Color Purple. This play is directed by Brian Fontenot, Jennifer Gesvantner, and Lauren Turner. With the announcement, the theater company continues its mission to unite theater artists from diverse disciplines with the goal of maintaining a high standard of artistic excellence and easily-accessible programming to patrons of all ages.

From Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning bestseller comes a powerful, Tony Award-winning musical with a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues. This stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie from the early to mid-20th century in the American south, as she journeys from childhood to womanhood, through joy and despair, anguish and hope to discover the true power of love and life. With a soul-rousing, Grammy-winning score, The Color Purple is an unforgettable and intensely moving American classic.

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm. Tickets can be purchased online at www.cuttingedgetheater.com or at the door. Reservations strongly suggested as this production is anticipated to sell out each performance.
