Director John Doyle’s acclaimed Broadway revival of “The Color Purple,” the musical based on Alice Walker’s novel about four decades in the life of an African-American woman who triumphs over abuse and oppression, will have a two-week engagement in Chicago next summer.

The show will run July 17-29, 2018, at the Oriental Theatre. Meanwhile, a preview of the production will be part of this summer’s free Broadway in Chicago concert scheduled for Aug. 14 in Millennium Park.
