Saturday September 17, 2011 / 3:00pm (Preview)Violet: A Musical
How was your experience?
We saw a preview which had some technical issues but the announcement clearly stated what it would be and that the show would go on and it certainly did! LOVED THE VOCALS!!!! LOVED THE VOCALS!!!! LOVED THE VOCALS!!!! LOVED THE VOCALS!!!! The music represents many styles so there is something for everyone. They took us "down on the farm", "to church" and "to the clubs". The jazz vocals of one piece by and ensemble member made me want to stand up 'throw a shoe at her" (translation: she was amazing). Oh yeah the storyline is interesting and we actually care about the characters and the staging was unique. I guess I would cut a scene or two and at least one song (can't remember which - only because it really didn't do much to move us along) to shorten the show a bit. The three of enjoyed the show a lot mostly because of the vocals. They could have done this show on a street corner and I would say go see it if you can.
