This moving musical presented by Cedar Rapids’ own Revival Theatre Company tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty and acceptance. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet goes on a cross-country journey in search of healing at the hands of a televangelist. Along the way she discovers beauty, courage and love.
Featuring a score brimming with gospel and bluegrass, the musical drama won the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered off-Broadway in 1997.
The show’s music was written by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline or Change, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek). The lyrics and book are from the Brian Crawley (A Little Princess).
Revival Theatre Company is a Cedar Rapids-based venture devoted to producing cutting edge, contemporary and classical musical theatre.
