From the Tony Award-winning composer of Shrek the Musical and the director of DLO’s La Cage Aux Folles


It’s About the Journeys You Take to Discover Who You Are.

Set in the Civil Rights era, Violet is a powerful show, rich with music that ranges from folk to blues to rock to gospel. As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. With enough money finally saved she’s traveling across the 1964 Deep South towards a miracle: the healing touch of a TV evangelist that will make her beautiful. Along the way, she befriends two young soldiers – one white, one African-American – friendships that could grow into something more. Will Violet find the healing she seeks?
