Violet
Music by Jeanine Tesori
Lyrics & Book by Brian Crawley
March 3 – April 3, 2016

On a cross-country bus trip in search of a minister to heal her scarred face, one woman discovers the true meaning of beauty, courage, and love. Winner of the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered off-Broadway, and Tony Award nominated for its 2014 Broadway revival run, Violet features a score of show-stopping anthems ranging from American roots to folk to gospel from one of the most vibrant composers of modern musical theatre Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change; Thoroughly Modern Millie; Shrek; Fun Home, winner of five 2015 Tony’s including Best Musical).

Violet is presented in part by the generous support of: The Sheri and Les Biller Family Foundation.
