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).

- “Fresh and exciting! Director Stephen Rayne works his magic here by capturing the production’s enduring strength—relating to and indentifying with the characters so much that they become a circle of treasured friends." -- DC Theatre Scene
