Some of us must journey far to find the beauty that lives within.
MAY 11 - JUNE 17, 2018
Music by Jeanine Tesori Book + Lyrics by Brian Crawley
Based on "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts
Leaving her North Carolina home behind, Violet boards a bus and travels through the segregated South to be healed by a minister, convinced he can heal her scar, while discovering the true meaning of beauty along the way. From American roots to folk to gospel, VIOLET (2014 Tony nominee) is a powerhouse of music and theatre with a score from Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek, Fun Home) and book and lyrics by the acclaimed Brian Crawley (A Little Princess).
