Fulfilling its mission to bring new musicals to a wider audience, The Gallery Players presents Violet, the 1997 musical with book and lyrics by Brian Crawley and music by Jeanine Tesori, composer of the critically acclaimed Caroline, Or Change and Thoroughly Modern Millie. Set in 1964 during the early days of the Civil Rights Movement, it follows the growth and enlightenment of a bitter young woman accidentally scarred by her father. In hopes that a TV evangelist can cure her, she embarks on a journey by bus and along the way, meets a young black soldier who teaches her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider. One of the most acclaimed off-Broadway shows of the '90s. Directed by M. R. Goodley.
