About the shows:


Music by Jeanine Tesori, Book and Lyrics by Brian Crawley

Directed by Alessandro Costantini

Violet is the emotional journey of a young woman who was struck by a waywardaxe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. We follow Violet on a journey through the segregatedAmerican South in the 1960s seeking a miracle- the healing touch of atelevangelist who she hopes can make her beautiful. On the way, she meets amagnitude of characters whose love for her reaches far past her physical”imperfections.”

Merrily We Roll AlongMusic and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, Book by George FurthDirected by Mitchell Cushman

Merrily We Roll Along begins in the present and moves backwards, tracing thelives of three best friends from their estrangement through each milestone oftheir personal and professional lives (good and bad) to the start of their careers facing a bright future: young, talented and enthusiastic about the worlds waitingto be conquered.
