Backstage Theatre: Violet

Directed and designed by SPU Theatre and Music Students

About the Play

This moving musical features show-stopping anthems, ranging from roots to folk to gospel. With score from Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by the acclaimed Brian Crawley, Violet is inspired by Doris Betts' short story, "The Ugliest Pilgrim." The show astounded audiences and critics alike with its energy, music, and heart in its Off-Broadway premiere in 1997, and a 2014 Broadway run.
