Winner of the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1997, and then nominated for a Tony for its Broadway debut in 2014 in a revised version, Violet is a moving, North-Carolina set musical about one young woman’s healing quest for fulfillment. It features show-stopping anthems ranging from American roots to folk to gospel. With a score from Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori, Violet is inspired by the short story, The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts, astounding critics and audiences alike for more than 25 years. Violet is a powerhouse piece of theatre that needs no more than a few chairs and a company of talented performers to take an audience's breath away.
