Highlights From Violet Starring Sutton Foster at New York City Center’s Encores! Off-Center

New York City Center presented Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley’s Violet as the second show in its new Off-Broadway program Encores! Off-Center. The one-night-only concert production featured Sutton Foster in the title role and Joshua Henry and Van Hughes as two young soldiers who befriend and become fascinated with her on a bus trip through the south at the dawn of the Civil Rights era. Violet’s limited run at Playwrights Horizons in 1997 garnered an Obie Award, a Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best Musical and a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical. Here the cast performs tunes “Surprised,” “On My Way,” “Let It Sing” and more. Read the Playbill story.
