Cynthia Erivo is currently starring in the Broadway Musical The Color Purple. She plays the role of Celie and has been nominated for best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical. Her performance on The Late Show with Steven Colbert is one of the best live performances I have seen in a long time. It’s extraordinary.
I’ve watched the performance at least a dozen times and there is nothing to improve upon. It is as good as it gets.
