Presented by Nashville Repertory Theatre at TPAC - Andrew Johnson Theater, Nashville TN

May 12 - 21 2023


Music by Jeanine Tesori, Lyrics and Book by Brian Crawley

As a girl, Violet was struck by a wayward axe blade when her father was chopping wood, leaving her with a visible scar across her face. Now, she’s traveling across the Deep South in 1964 towards a miracle – the healing touch of a TV evangelist who will make her beautiful. Although she may not succeed in having the scar on her face healed, Violet may be able to repair those scars that are lying deeper than her skin. On the way, she meets a young soldier whose love for her reaches far past her physical “imperfections.” With a sweeping score by Jeanine Tesori (Thoroughly Modern Mille, Shrek the Musical), Violet is a powerhouse piece of theatre about healing and finding the beauty within.
