The Encores! Off-Center production of Violet has transferred to Broadway this spring after a critically acclaimed run this past summer! Sutton Foster stars as Violet, a young and bitter girl who has been accidentally scarred by her father. Refusing to accept her circumstances, she sets off on the road to Oklahoma where she hopes a TV evangelist can help cure her differences. On her way, she meets a young black solider who teachers her courage and what it means to be an outsider in the deep South during the Civil Rights movement of 1964. Today, Luner on Theatre brings you a first look at Violet on Broadway!
Violet is now officially open and in performances on Broadway! However, it won’t be there forever! The show officially opened this past Sunday, April 20th and is playing a limited engagement through August 10th, 2014. The show is being presented at the American Airlines Theatre on 42nd Street. The show is directed by Leigh Silverman. Thank you to Joan Marcus for the photos used in this blog post. For more information, visit Roundabout Theatre Company’s Official Website.
