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 an adaptation of Doris Betts The Ugliest Pilgrim, and 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. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime.
