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!
ABOUT THE COLOR PURPLE
"I'll write you every day. Nothin' but death will keep me from it!" This is the promise Celie's sister makes as the girls are torn apart, setting in motion this moving chronicle of a Southern family over half a century. With a jubilant, Grammy Award-winning score including jazz, gospel, ragtime and blues, The Color Purple stays true to Alice Walker's novel about the power of unending love.
