Saw the traveling show in Charlotte North Carolina and was so impressed. My mother loved it. It was so great that I am looking forward to seeing it again in Houston.

5.0 star rating Gwendolyne Lovett from Boston, Massachusetts


My daughter, took me on Mother's Day. I read the book, years before the movie came out. Jennifer Houston and the whole cast was excellent. I am going to Boston, to see it, I can look at the play over 20 times and never get sick of it. I first went and seen it, on Broadway in New York. Please go see it, you will be glad. We were seated in the 2nd row. It's worth it, no disappointments, I talked about it for months. For dinner before the play, we want to Sylvia's, the famous Soul Food, restaurant, in New York. I can't thank you enough, my daughter, Alisha, for my Mother's Day, I will never forget it. Love you.

One of the best shows I have seen in quite a while! Story stayed true to the movie but had an unexpected enjoyable twist of laughter added to it!

Singers were awesome, It was like watching some bits and pieces of the movie in fast forward. There was no props per say, chairs and sheets? Not recommended. 3/01/2018

2.0 star rating Sondra from St. Louis, Missouri


I saw this movie years ago so I was aware of the storyline. As a season ticket holder for years at the Fabulous Fox, I have to say that I was very disappointed in this play. The stage decorations were boring. The characters move chairs around on the wooden wall. Really, this is the best they could do. No scene changes either. The singers were quite good although there were times when the volume of screaming the music was ear splitting. The mood of the audience was very positive when Celie defies her husband and moves on with her life. So that part was uplifting with so many women’s issues being discussed lately. The music did not even have one single standout song that I could take away as memorable. In general I would never recommend this play and will never waste money seeing it again.
