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).

Why did a handsome, popular, theatre idol murder President Lincoln? Was Booth's act a result of a Confederate conspiracy? Was he a Confederate spy acting as part of a larger plot or simply a lone gunman? Was he a player in an internal Union scheme? Was a White House spy involved? Many theories have been proposed and discarded. Examine the controversies surrounding Lincoln’s assassination anew — at the very scene of the crime — during this eye-opening session.
Join renowned experts Michael Kauffman, author of American Brutus; Frank J. Williams, Chairman of The Lincoln Forum and Chief Justice (ret) of Rhode Island; and H. Donald Winkler, author of Stealing Secrets and Lincoln and Booth: More Light on the Conspiracy, for a rounded view of the conspiracies and realities of the horrific events of April 14th, 1865.
Presented in collaboration by the National Park Service, Ford’s Theatre Society, Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site; The International Spy Museum; and the Willard InterContinental Hotel.
