Staging The Color Purple with Todd Underwood

September 19, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


As part of Essex Library’s month-long celebration of Alice Walker’s The Color Purple in all of its forms – book, musical, and movie – we are engaging in a discussion and Q&A with Todd Underwood, Assistant Artistic Director at Ivoryton Playhouse and Director of their fall musical, The Color Purple. On Tuesday, September 19, at 7:00 pm, we will hear from Mr. Underwood about the process of putting a play onstage, the difference in how a story is told/received onstage versus on screen or in literature, the benefits and challenges of producing a play that is also such an iconic movie and book, and more, including answering audience questions. Check the library’s website www.youressexlibrary.org for information about this program and other events associated with this celebrated story. This program is FREE and open to the public. Registration is required. For more information or to register, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560 or visit www.youressexlibrary.org.
