Twelve troubled years after a childhood accident left her severely scarred, Violet embarks on a pilgrimage to visit a televangelist she believes will heal her. But the long bus ride across 1964 America, from North Carolina to Oklahoma, provides Violet a greater opportunity — the chance to discover the liberating powers of faith, hope and unconditional love. From the composer of Fun Home, Thoroughly Modern Millie and Caroline, or Change comes what New York Times critic Charles Isherwood calls her “best” and “most accessible” music, rich with flavors of country, gospel, blues and honky-tonk rock. Winner of the Drama Critics’ Circle Award and the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical and nominated for a Tony award, this redemptive story will warm your spirit.
“Terrific, heart-stirring … an enduringly rewarding musical.” – The New York Times
