Curve Commissions: The Color Purple Digital Concert

We were proud to release a Curve Commissioned digital concert of The Color Purple to mark Black History Month. 

Featuring reflections and performances from cast and creative members of our 2019 Made at Curve and Birmingham Hippodrome co-production – winner of Best Regional Production at the WhatsOnStage Awards earlier this year – this video was a celebration of this great musical and the talent of all those involved. 

The Color Purple – Digital Concert was captioned and available to watch for free on our website and social media channels until Mon 19 October at 11am.
