This multi-award-winning musical follows a scarred woman who embarks on a cross-country bus trip to be healed by a minister... discovering the true meaning of beauty along the way. A story that centers around strength, love, awareness, and growth, "Violet" is Bay Area Musicals' 2nd show of the season.
Winner of the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1997, and then on to a Tony-nominated Broadway debut in 2014 with a revised version, "Violet" is a moving musical featuring show-stopping anthems, ranging from American-roots to folk to gospel. With a score from Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change; Thoroughly Modern Millie; Shrek; Fun Home) and book and lyrics by the acclaimed Brian Crawley (A Little Princess), "Violet" is inspired by the short story, "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts, astounding critics and audiences alike in two separate decades.
Recommended for ages 8 and up.
