Violet at American Airlines Theatre
American Airlines Theatre

Tony Award winner Sutton Foster stars as Violet, a disfigured young woman on a cross-country journey in search of transformation through faith.

Set in 1964 in the deep South during the early days of the Civil Rights movement, Violet follows the growth and enlightenment of a bitter young woman accidentally scarred by her father. In hopes that a TV evangelist can cure her, she embarks on a journey by bus from her sleepy North Carolina town to Oklahoma. Along the way, she meets a young black soldier who teaches her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.
