The Color Purple
Join us on Thursday, November 12th to see the highly anticipated revival of The Color Purple starring Jennifer Hudson!

Academy Award and Grammy Award winner Jennifer Hudson makes her highly anticipated Broadway debut in the John Doyle directed revival of The Color Purple, a musical based on the Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winning novel by Alice Walker.

Spence-Chapin is a non-for-profit organization finding loving and permanent homes for infants, older children, sibling groups, and medically and developmentally fragile children in need of families, and providing life-long services to members of the adoption community.  Spence-Chapin has reduced and removed many of the financial obstacles to adoption to ensure that more families have the opportunity to open their hearts – we are able to do so through the generous support of donors. The Annual Theatre Benefit is one of the highlights of our year, and an opportunity for our donors to come together for a night of great food and culture in support of the life-changing work we are doing.

Your support is more important than ever before – join us for a wonderful evening of theater and helping build families!
