John Doyle, known for blurring the lines between actor and musician in electrifying revivals of Sondheim and Rodgers & Hammerstein musicals (among others), strips away the glamour and largesse that marked and often marred the original Broadway production of The Color Purple. Doyle's set, with bare wooden beams that hold a group of equally austere chairs suspended above the sluggish action, is about as muted as the faded colors of Ann Hould-Ward's period-appropriate costumes.

The Color Purple has an open run at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Click here to read Christopher Kompanek's full review.
