This multi-award-winning musical follows a scarred woman who embarks on a cross-country bus trip to be healed by a minister and discovers the true meaning of beauty along the way.

Set in the Deep South during the early days of the civil rights movement, and featuring an energetic gospel, rock, country and R&B score, "Violet" follows the growth and enlightenment of a bitter young disfigured woman who embarks on a long bus trip to receive the healing touch of a TV evangelist who she believes can cure her. Along the way, she meets a young black soldier who teaches her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.

Winner of the Drama Critic's Circle Award for Best Musical.
