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).

This tour was so much fun!!! It had the excitement of a Murder Mystery event, but with the added true historical facts of the events of Lincoln's Assasination. I will be back in DC area in late July and plan on taking the tour again.
The tour is only in it's 2nd week and it seemed like they'd been doing it for years it was so well setup. I hope they keep it going forever.
On the night of April 14, 1865, Detective John McDevitt was on duty at the Washington Metropolitan Police headquarters at the corner of 10th and E Streets. Just before 10:30pm, frantic witnesses rushed in with news: President Lincoln had been shot at Ford’s Theatre. Before long, other rumors swept the streets: the Secretary of State, the Vice-President, General Grant were all dead...Southern prisoners had been freed...Confederate cavalry were converging on the city. This tour will look at the Lincoln assassination conspiracy and separate fact from fiction.
History on Foot lasts approximately two hours and makes at least eight stops throughout the story. The tour does not actually go inside the theater. The distance walked is approximately 1.4 miles, an easy walk to follow one of the most exciting nights in American history.
