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, toe-tapping 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, Violet tells the touching story of a young woman accidentally scarred by her father 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. She meets two young soldiers along the way who teach her about love, courage and what it means to be an outsider. Winner of the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical, this Ford's Theatre production is directed and choreographed by Tony-nominated Jeff Calhoun (Broadway's Newsies).

I thought the play was fantastic. It was very close to me in certain ways, because I served in United States Air Force during the Vietnam War as a Black officer. Beleive it or not, some of the scenes in play were still occurring in the early 70's. My hat is off to all the people who had anything to do with making that so real. I will going to see it again before it leaves the Ford Theater.

I thought the acting was very good and that it was an interesting story. It was a bit artsy for my taste with the tap dancing, choreographed flying scenes and the storyline could have been somewhat tighter. But overall, I enjoyed it.
Recommended for ages 10 and up. Play includes some adult language.
