The Color Purple Set To End 2 Year Run

"The Color Purple" will close Feb. 24 on Broadway after a run of more than two years.

The musical, based on Alice Walker's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of triumph over adversity, will have played 910 performances by the time the final curtain falls next month at the Broadway Theatre.

The current cast includes Zonya Love as Celie, Walker's determined heroine, as well as Grammy winners Chaka Khan and BeBe Winans and "American Idol" finalist LaKisha Jones.

The $11 million musical, which opened in December 2005, recouped its investment in less than year for the show's producers, who include Oprah Winfrey and Quincy Jones.

A touring company, starring LaToya London of "American Idol" and Michelle Williams of Destiny's Child, is currently playing Los Angeles. The tour is scheduled through 2009.

1- Number your curse words and call out a number when stress strikes.
But be sure to have the old removed first; otherwise the new will not come into play.

For example, I want to lose 5 pounds of fat by February 25th.
Skiing and snowboarding are strenuous sports which demand a lot of endurance,
so your usual set of ten to fifteen reps really isn''. Menopause weight gain is not inevitable, but it can be more difficult to maintain a
healthy weight as your metabolism slows.

Here again you want to find or even create an angle or slant in which you can take headline news and 'incorporate' it into a post you are composing.
Aamir Khan and Amitabh Bachchan had a rough battle, when the movies related to
them were released at the same time. However, today, the wedding photographers capture photographs of
moments that are precious and that you would
cherish all your life; and, when you least
expects the wedding photographer to capture you.
