VIOLET is a multi award-winning musical based on the short story The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts. Music by Jeanine Tesori (Tony Award winner for Best Original Score with Lisa Kron for the musical Fun Home, and Tony nominated scores for Caroline, Or Change, Shrek The Musical and Thoroughly Modern Millie), Book & Lyrics by Brian Crawley.

1964. Somewhere between North Carolina and Oklahoma, we find Violet, a young woman who was facially disfigured as a child. She hopes her life savings will bring her a miracle halfway across the country. Reflecting on her childhood, and shaped by the reactions of the people she encounters, Violet embarks on a life-changing personal journey.

Two hours of torture
The storyline was boring and the songs were unmemorable. On top of that you’re trapped for two straight hours. There’s no interval and I would have had to cross the stage to get to the exit.
