One of the most acclaimed off-Broadway shows of the ’90s, Violet has wowed critics and audiences alike with its powerful story and its energetic gospel, rock, country and R&B score by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change). Set in the Deep South during the early days of the civil rights movement, this powerful musical tells the touching story of a young woman accidentally scarred on the face as a child. Hoping that a TV evangelist can cure her, Violet embarks on a long bus ride from her sleepy North Carolina town through Memphis to Oklahoma. Along the way, she meets two young soldiers who teach her about love, courage and the true meaning of beauty. Her journey of discovery debuted on Broadway in 2014, and now it kicks into gear at the Lyceum Theatre in this production from San Diego Repertory Theatre directed by Sam Woodhouse.
