The Color Purple is an excellent novel. I love reading and teaching it. The movie is somewhat less to my taste. As for the musical onstage.... I can't quite imagine how it would work. But it is going to be in Houston, and perhaps it will be better than what my limited imagination enables me to expect from it.

One way or another, Walker's novel is outstanding, and any adaptation surely must be worth seeing.
