Violet was recently revived on Broadway with Tony winner Sutton Foster in the title role. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of a TV evangelist. Along the way, she forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders who teach her about beauty, love, courage and how to overcome the scars that lie beneath our skin.

Eleven talented performers star headed by Stephany Goulart (Violet), Jeffrey Fiorello (Father), Mike King (Preacher), Shan Williams (Flick), Matt Coakley (Monty), Kyra Anthon (Young Violet), Virgil (Will Carey), Laura Berman Fortgang (Old Lady), Thomas Fetner (Leroy/Billy), Bailey Howell (Radio Singer/Bus Passenger), and Sharae Moultrie (Lula Buffington/Music Hall Singer).
