As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved, she’s traveling across the 1964 Deep South towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist that will make her beautiful. Though she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those that are lying deeper than her skin, and on the way she meets a young, African-American soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical imperfections. With its powerful story,Violet has astounded critics and audiences alike making it one of the most acclaimed off-Broadway shows of the ’90s. Violet is currently on Broadway starring the Tony-nominated Sutton Foster, and features a score of show-stopping anthems ranging from American-roots to folk to gospel from one of most vibrant composers of modern musical theatre, Jeanine Tesori.
Performances Friday, Saturday and Sunday, April 8, 9, 10, 15, 16 and 17.
