 A review By Viktoria I.V. King

VIOLET Donnell, Foster, Henry 023 captioned

Violet  is a marvelously crafted piece of work that tantalizes your emotions, lifts you up with joy and leaves a mark upon you as you depart the theater.

Violet tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst  the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet (Sutton Foster) dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.

Two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster is brilliant and gives the best performance of her career. Tony nominee Joshua Henry has a voice that can move you and the talent to make him a standout. Annie Golden is extremely funny and entertaining in a variety of roles. Violet features music by Tony nominee Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change, Fun Home) and book and lyrics by Brian Crawley (A Little Princess). The enchanting music is catchy, heartfelt and resonant.The director Leigh Silverman has a simple and realistic touch that allows the emotional pull of this story to aim straight for your heart.

 

Take it from me, I left the theater with tears of joy; Violet is a must see!
