The Color Purple's Felicia P. Fields on KOCE Tonight!
The lovely and talented Felicia P. Fields - who stars as Sofia in The Color Purple - will be featured on tonight's edition of Real Orange with Ed Arnold and Ann Pulice at 6:30 and 11 p.m. Ms. Fields (that's her on the left) lives and breathes Sofia as she originated the role on Broadway and has been playing it ever since. (For those who have seen the film version of Alice Walker's Pulitzer-Prize winning novel, you will remember Sofia as Oprah Winfrey, the generous producer of the musical.) For her efforts, Fields has been honored with a Tony nomination, a 2006 Theatre World Award, two Broadway.com Awards, as Drama League honoree and more. Tune in tonight to Channel 50 to catch Felicia musing on the show and come see her work her magic live on stage in The Color Purple, running now through November 30 in Segerstrom Hall.
