San Francisco-based company Bay Area Musicals presents Violet, the musical from composer Jeanine Tesori and lyricist/book writer Brian Crawley. The production, which opened February 16, is set to continue performances at San Francisco's Alcazar Theatre through March 17.
Set in 1964 in the deep South during the early days of the Civil Rights movement, Violet 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 from her sleepy North Carolina town to Oklahoma. Along the way, she meets a young black soldier who teaches her about beauty, love, courage, and what it means to be an outsider.
