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).

An extraordinary performance! I was transported back in time. Everything about this production was perfect. There is not better way to understand history than to experience a superb performance bring it to life. Congratulations to all who made this event possible.
Over the course of seven debates, Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas tackled the hot topics of their day: state’s rights, slavery and the intent of the Constitution. The Rivalry captures the fiery rhetoric and wry humor of those debates, while adding the insights of Douglas’s wife, Adele. As Lincoln and Douglas race for the chance to be U.S. Senator, Adele reexamines her own concepts of freedom. Ford’s Theatre Director of Theatre Programming Mark Ramont directs Robert Parsons as Abraham Lincoln, Helen Hayes Award winner Rick Foucheux and Sarah Zimmerman (The Matchmaker).
