Jessica M. Johnson - The Color Purple, Theatre Horizon

On today’s podcast, I sit down with Jessica M. Johnson who plays “Celie” in Theatre Horizon’s Regional Premiere of “The Color Purple” directed by Amina Robinson. To say this production “Gave Me Life” is a huge understatement! To see a celebration of artists of color on stage with such a dynamic production team  laying the foundation, it’s no wonder why the production has been extended twice! Listen as I try to contain myself and breakdown this piece with Jessica. We even get a sample of her voice but, you have to listen all the way through to hear!! Stay Tuned!
