VioletMusic by Jeanine Tesori and Book by Brian CrawleyDirected by Jeremy DeCarlosMusic Direction by Charlene ThomasJune 17 – July 3, 2022Winner of the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1997, and then nominated for a Tony for its Broadway debut in 2014 in a revised version, Violet is a moving, North-Carolina set musical about one young woman’s healing quest for fulfillment. It features show-stopping anthems ranging from American roots to folk to gospel. With a score from Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change; Thoroughly Modern Millie; Shrek; Fun Home) and book and lyrics by the acclaimed Brian Crawley (A Little Princess), Violet is inspired by the short story, The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts, astounding critics and audiences alike for more than 25 years. Violet is a powerhouse piece of theatre that needs no more than a few chairs and a company of talented performers to take an audience's breath away.
An award-winning musical based on the adored movie which follows the transformation of Elle Woods as she tackles stereotypes and scandal in pursuit of her dreams. Action-packed and exploding with memorable songs and dynamic dances, this musical is so much fun, it should be illegal! Elle Woods appears to have it all, but her life is turned upside down when her boyfriend Warner dumps her so he can attend Harvard Law. Determined to get him back, Elle charms her way into the prestigious law school, with her Chihuahua, Bruiser, in tow. Elle quickly realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
