Cast of Broadway's 'The Color Purple'

1 of 5
Weeks before the first curtain call, the cast of Broadway's new hit, The Color Purple , gave Oprah's audience an exclusive sneak peek of the production. But, after the show ended, the cameras kept rolling and the cast kept singing.

Elizabeth Withers-Mendes, the actress who plays Shug Avery (far right), got the joint jumpin' with her rousing rendition of "Push Da Button"—one of Oprah's favorite songs from the musical.

For 20 years, Oprah says she has held The Color Purple dear to her heart. When the book was first released, she wanted everyone to read it. Now, she thinks everyone should see the play, which she describes as a "piece of grace." Get your tickets today!
