Celie, who is abused by her father, then her husband, struggles on her journey toward personal discovery. Oprah Winfrey's presentation is full of hope, inspiration, and triumph that blends dance with the sounds and rhythms of blues, gospel, jazz, swing, rural roots, and African music.

Oprah Winfrey's presentation of The Color Purple was nominated for 11 Tony awards, including best musical in 2006. This deal is good for select June dates (see the fine print). You’ll get the best available seats at the time of your redemption in either the Orchestra or Mezzanine sections. Just bring your Groupon to The Wang Theatre box office on the day of the show or to get a ticket for a future date. If the $68 tickets are sold out, you'll get the next most valuable ticket, or come back on any other night.

Nearly everyone loves Oprah Winfrey’s presentation of The Color Purple, among them The New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, and the San Francisco Chronicle.

Yelpers love the old-school feel of the Wang Theatre, giving it 4.5 stars. Here's a sampling of their comments:

  • "As a born and raised Boston girl, I am still enamored with the grandeur of the Wang. It's old school classy and everytime I'm there I feel like I'm transported back in time and going to the theater with my long cigarette holder and elbow length gloves." – Jessica F.
  • "This place is gorgeous. I'd say there is not a bad seat in the house." – Melissa M.
  • "The Wang is beautiful and so very ornate. The bathrooms are just as extravagant. The ushers tend to be sweet older people who direct you to your spot with their little flashlights and a splash of sass. The accoustics [sic] are super and the seats are pretty darn comfy." – Bridget D.
