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 endeavor is the live stage production "Part of the Plan," which features the music of the late, celebrated, singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg. After acquiring the rights to Fogelberg's catalogue of music in 2012, Atkinson, with partner Karen Harris, have penned the book of the original musical, which utilizes 19 Fogelberg songs - including his first hit single, Part of the Plan, as well as Longer, Same Old Lang Syne, and Leader of the Band. In September 2017, "Part of the Plan" opened the Tennessee Performing Arts Center's 2018-19 Broadway Season in Nashville to rave reviews.
