The best Tony-nominated musical nobody’s ever heard of… "Violet" has wowed critics and audiences with its powerful story and energetic gospel, rock, country and R&B score by Jeanine Tesori ("Fun Home" and "Caroline, or Change"). Set in the Deep South during the early days of the civil rights movement, this powerful musical tells the touching story of a young woman accidentally scarred on the face as a child. Hoping that a TV evangelist can cure her, Violet embarks on a long bus ride from her sleepy North Carolina town through Memphis to Oklahoma. Along the way, she meets two young soldiers who teach her about love, courage and the true meaning of beauty.

Recommendation: Ages 13 and above. Contains adult language.
