Presse : Les critiques sont très bonnes:

"Give thanks this morning, children of Broadway, and throw in a hearty hallelujah. 'The Color Purple' has been born again, and its conversion is a glory to behold." Ben Brantley for New York Times

"'The Color Purple' is bolder, brighter and deeper than ever." Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

"The show works in a primal way. Its pop-inflected score — though performed here on the cheap, with a skimpy, keyboard-heavy band — has surprising staying power. Your head may quibble, but your heart’s on board." Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

"This Color Purple is a celebration of black women, and it fills you with appreciation for the musical’s return. It’s here, and it’s beautiful." Adam Feldman for Time Out New York

"To those who question why a revival of 'The Color Purple' is back on Broadway after its predecessor closed there only in 2008, the answer is two words, and it may not be the two words you expect. Cynthia Erivo." Mark Kennedy for Associated Press

"This revelatory overhaul is characterized by its grace, restraint and soaring spirituality, peeling back the excess to expose the life-affirming material's molten emotional core. It remakes a patchy musical as a thrilling one." David Rooney for Hollywood Reporter

"Jennifer Hudson is radiant as the love machine Shug Avery. Danielle Brooks shakes the house as the earthy Sofia. And Cynthia Erivo, the tiny pint of dynamite who originated the role at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London, brings the audience roaring to its feet as Celie." Marilyn Stasio for Variety
