Purple Rain

Celebrate 40 years of Purple Rain, Albert Magnoli's musical adaptation of the Prince album of the same name!

A victim of his own anger, the Kid (Prince) is a Minneapolis musician on the rise with his band, the Revolution, escaping a tumultuous home life through music. While trying to avoid making the same mistakes as his truculent father, the Kid navigates the club scene and a rocky relationship with a captivating singer, Apollonia. But another musician, Morris, looks to steal the Kid's spotlight -- and his girl.

Scored by Prince himself, Purple Rain earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score and is widely regarded as one of the best rock musicals to this day.
