Founded in 2001 by Kate Atkinson,
Purple Mountain Productions is a boutique production company based in Los Angeles, CA, specializing in independent film, television, and live stage productions. Purple Mountain Productions creates, develops, and produces top-quality projects independent of the studio system.
Atkinson's most recent endeavors have been in musical theater. After acquiring the rights to the late, celebrated, singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg's catalog of music in 2012, Atkinson, with partner Karen Harris under their K-Squared Entertainment banner, penned the book of Part of the Plan, an original musical, which utilizes 19 Fogelberg songs - including Part of the Plan, Leader of the Band, Same Old Long Syne, and Longer. The Broadway-aimed musical, "Part of the Plan", opened the Tennessee Performing Arts Center's 2018-19 Broadway season to standing ovations and rave reviews, and is continuing its development at Signature Theater in D.C. This past February, Atkinson produced a NYC staged reading of A Very Brady Musical, based on TV's iconic show The Brady Bunch, and she's been tapped to produce the first commercial production of the show - a national tour with an Off-Broadway engagement.
