Monday night, June 11, 2012, I threw a party at Willis Wonderland to thank the wonderful cast and crew of my musical, The Color Purple, for the incredible and intimate performance they staged of it for three months at The Celebration Theatre in Los Angeles. They pulled off a miracle in a 99 seat theater, now a way I long to see the show performed again, and made me love this story, one I was already was long in love with, even more. To many more soul food dinners, mayhem, and sing-alongs in the name of Purple!
