My name is Arthur Callahan; I was Company Manager on the National Broadway Tour of “The Color Purple”.
VirLinda Stanton played the role of Church Lady Darlene & Shug’s (us). Stanton’s sparkling soprano voice and effervescent personality are quite a treat to have on tour. Stanton was also never shy to participate in Press around the country, sharing her voice, talking about her journey to The Color Purple, and sharing her life’s testimony. Listening to Stanton sing or speak exhibited the blessed life she has worked for. The time I spent with VirLinda showed this was just a glimpse at what she has to share with the world.
