WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Bailiwick Chicago will stage the award-winning off-Broadway hit Violet, a powerful and heartwarming story of a vulnerable young woman's challenges, loves and emotional journey. Directed by Bailiwick Artistic Advisor Elizabeth Margolius, "Violet" follows the growth and enlightenment of a bitter young woman who embarks on a journey by bus from her sleepy North Carolina town to Oklahoma in hopes that a TV evangelist can cure her scar. En route, she meets a young black soldier who teaches her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider. The score for "Violet" has a lively bluegrass feeling, with occasional dashes of gospel, rock, country and R&B. "Violet" was awarded the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical upon its debut at Playwright's Horizon's.
