Recently revived on Broadway with Sutton Foster and with music by Jeanine Tesori (Shrek, Fun Home, Thoroughly Modern Millie) the award-winning musical Violet tells of a young woman's quest for healing as she travels across the 1960s Deep South. 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.

Featuring a diverse musical score of country, blues, bluegrass, and gospel, Violet is an emotional and powerful story filled with show-stopping anthems and moving ballads.
