Oprah Winfrey Presents: "The Color Purple"

Oprah Winfrey has agreed to invest more than $1 million in a Broadway musical version of "The Color Purple," the New York Times reported Monday


The kind-hearted and generous Oprah Winfrey has reportedly agreed to invest more than $1 million in a Broadway musical version of Steven Spielberg's "The Color Purple," for which she ever performed and was nominated for an Oscar. During an interview with New York Times the Hollywood babe revealed "It's been a secret dream of mine to be part of Broadway. ... I hope to be able to do for this production some of what I've been able to do for books -- that is, to open the door to the possibilities for a world of people who have never been or even thought of going to a Broadway show."

The musical will be titled 'Oprah Winfrey Presents: "The Color Purple"' and is set to begin previews on Nov. 1 with its official opening at the Broadway Theater on Dec. 1.
