Violet

Directed by ALESSANDRO COSTANTINI, Choreographed by MIRANDA WAUGH & DENISE VITALI.
Music by JEANINE TESORI. Book and Lyrics by BRIAN CRAWLEY,
“Violet” is the emotional journey of a disfigured girl who was struck by a wayward axe blade, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. We follow Violet on a journey through the segregated American South in the 1960s seeking a miracle- the healing touch of a televangelist who she hopes can make her beautiful. On the way, she meets a magnitude of characters whose love for her reaches far past her physical “imperfections.” Winner of the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1997.
