We are excited to announce our new partnership with the hit Broadway musical, The Color Purple. To celebrate, we are offering customers the unique opportunity to enter today to win a “JetBlue, The Color Purple, and the Red Carpet” grand prize experience providing a lucky winner and a guest with flights to New York to attend the opening performance, a chance to walk the red carpet, and an exclusive meet and greet opportunity with cast and crew.
Since October, those traveling on JetBlue have been treated to an enthralling duet featuring Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson and Cynthia Erivo on JetBlue’s Plus TV.
The Color Purple features Grammy, Academy Award, and Golden Globe winner Jennifer Hudson making her Broadway debut opposite Cynthia Erivo, the breakout star of John Doyle’s acclaimed Menier Chocolate Factory production, and Orange is the New Black’s Danielle Brooks, in this season’s highly anticipated production of The Color Purple.
Based on Alice Walkers’ Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the Warner Bros./Amblin Entertainment motion picture, The Color Purple, is adapted for the stage by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner Marsha Norman, with music and lyrics by Grammy Award winners Brenda Russell, Allee Willis, and Stephen Bray.
The Color Purple is an unforgettable story of enduring love and triumph over adversity. With a fresh, joyous score of jazz, ragtime, gospel and blues, this stirring family chronicle follows the inspirational Celie, played by Cynthia Erivo, as she journeys through joy and despair, anguish and hope to discover the power of life and love.
Previews for the revival of the Tony Award-winning musical starring Grammy Award® winner Jennifer Hudson run through December 9 at The Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre. Opening night is December 10, 2015.
