The conversation is now over and has been archived, and, thankfully, is available to watch online. I’ve embedded it below my original, earlier post (published while the conversation was happening live).
It actually began about 20 minutes ago (it’s 7:50pm EST right now, and it started at 7:30pm EST), but it’s a 90-minute conversation, so if you’re getting here while it’s still live, you have some time to go until it’s over at 9pm EST. I assume it’ll be archived and made available online some time after today.
So I’ll keep this brief.
Taking place, live (as I type this anyway) at the John L. Tishman Auditorium, at The New School, in NYC, a conversation with musical performances from the upcoming new Broadway production of “The Color Purple,” with Alice Walker, author of the 1982 Pulitzer Prize–winning novel; John Doyle, who re–envisioned the new musical; and two of its stars – Jennifer Hudson, and from the hit London production, British stage star Cynthia Erivo, both making their Broadway debuts.
The conversation is moderated by New York Times theater reporter Michael Paulson.
