Take the Journey of a Lifetime.

with Capital City Theatre

A year ago Capital City promised Madison a big show with Broadway talent, and they’ve definitely delivered.

Violet

Best Musical!

Drama Critics Circle Award
Lucille Lortel Award

Violet, written by Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley, was recently on Broadway and nominated for Best Musical Revival of 2014. The musical is the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith.

Capital City Theatre was not about to open their first season quietly. They’ve merged Broadway marquees with Madisonian charms.
