The Roundabout Theatre Company's Broadway production of Violet, starring two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster alongside Colin Donnell and Tony nominee Joshua Henry, begins previews March 28 at the American Airlines Theatre.



The cast also includes Alexander Gemignani (Les Misérables, Sweeney Todd) as Father, Ben Davis (A Little Night Music, Anna Nicole the Opera) as Preacher, Annie Golden ("Orange Is The New Black," Assassins) as Hotel Singer/Old Lady and Emerson Steele (A Christmas Carol, Annie) as Young Violet.

The ensemble includes Austin Lesch (Billy Elliot, Altar Boyz), Anastacia McCleskey (Priscilla Queen of the Desert, Hair), Charlie Pollock (Urinetown, 9 to 5) and Rema Webb (The Book of Mormon, The Lion King). Jacob Keith Watson and Virginia Ann Woodruff (The Color Purple, Leap of Faith) are swings. 

"Violet tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s," according to the Roundabout. "Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet (Foster) 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. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider."
