Violet was facially disfigured as a child and it has shaped her life, she remembers and sees the reactions of the people she meets from day to day. Determined to make a change, Violet decides to take her life savings and head from North Caroline halfway across the US to Oklahoma where she hopes to find a miraculous cure. The people she meets along the way are sure to mould her in ways she didn’t expect, but what will she find waiting for her at the end of her road?

Based on Doris Betts’ short story The Ugliest Pilgrim the musical Violet made its initial debut off-Broadway. Having won multiple awards for Best Musical after its Off-Broadway premiere, the Broadway revival of this touching musical was nominated for 4 Tony Awards. Now Violet makes its way to London’s Charing Cross Theatre for its UK premiere.

Violet has a book and lyrics by Brian Crawley and music by the incredibly talented Jeanine Tesori.

Great story

Impressive performances by all. Unique theatre setting. Music sound level was slightly too loud for comfort but perhaps this was where we were sitting. Row C

Guy Johnson10th March

Great play and atmosphere... Downside :barstaff before the play were uninterested and appeared bored, bordering on rude which spoilt the evening somewhat.

M Ledger8th March

I had not been to this theatre before and was intrigued by the layout, seats on both sides of a central stage / floor area with revolving stage. Well lit and minimal scenery. Musical was excellent with a talented cast. Fast paced and the 140minutes with no interval flow past. Would recommend it.

Michelle Anderson3rd March

Ok but won't be going again.

Liz White3rd March

This was a lively and entertaining play. I thought the cast were excellent, acting and singing. I would certainly recommend this production. I particularly liked the staging making us close to the "action".

Joy Barran25th February

Amazing production at such a small venue. So impressed with the show I've been twice and wouldn't mind a third visit
