The Ehrhardt Group had the opportunity to promote the Broadway classic THE COLOR PURPLE as part of the East Jefferson General Hospital Broadway in New Orleans 2017-2018 season. The Ehrhardt Group secured stories across all four major news stations as well as the two major newspapers, The New Orleans Advocate and The Times-Picayune. Take a look at our work!

TEG secured morning show segments on WVUE-TV (FOX) and WWL-TV (CBS) with cast members Adrianna Hicks (“Celie”) and Amar Atkins and organized an “All Things Color Purple” game show segment with cast member Carrie Compere (“Sofia”) and the News with a Twist anchors on WGNO-TV (ABC)

TEG also organized a visit to Orleans Parish School Board’s McMain Secondary School in which cast members from the musical read their favorite passages from the THE COLOR PURPLE book to English and theater students. CLICK HERE to see the story on WDSU-TV (NBC).
