Special Cabaret Night after Violet on Oct 18 at 9:45pm  – Enjoy an evening of late night entertainment as the cast of Violet and friends share their favorite musical songs.


Winner of the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered off-Broadway, VIOLET features a score of show-stopping anthems ranging from American-roots to folk to gospel from one of most vibrant composers of modern musical theatre.

Based on The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts, the story follows Violet who as a young girls 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. Though she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet is able to repair those that are lying deeper than her skin; and on the way she meets a young, African-American Soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical “imperfections”.

With its immaculately crafted, multi-genre score whose lyrics and book are from the fantastic Brian Crawley (A LITTLE PRINCESS), VIOLET is a powerhouse piece of theatre that needs no more than a few chairs and talented performers to take an audience’s breath away. It is a must for companies dedicated to depicting moving stories on their stage.
