The Charing Cross Theatre in London welcomes a UK premiere in 2019 as a musical that has wowed audiences on the other side of the Atlantic makes it to these shores.

Violet has already caused a smash in New York and its journey to the UK can’t come soon enough, with an array of talented performers working under the direction of both Suntaro Fujita and Thom Southerland.

See Jeanine Tesori and Brian Crawley’s show come to life as audiences are transported back to the 1960s for an inspiring and rewarding journey through the title character. Theatregoers will not forget this in a hurry.

Originally a short story by Doris Betts called The Ugliest Pilgrim, since adapted as a short film in the 1980s, Violet focuses on the title character as she travels across the United States in the early 1960s and encounters people along the way who have different reactions to her disfigured face, the result of events in her childhood. She also learns more about herself and makes some bold observations in a celebrated story that earned awards for the production when it played on the other side of the Atlantic.

Jeanine Tesori provides the music for Brian Crawley’s book and lyrics and together they have crafted something truly special. Then again, we would expect no less from some talented individuals, with Brian Crawly penning an array of shows during an impressive career, including A Little Princess and How I Learned To Drive. Violet has proven one of his biggest success stories, earning him countless awards since it debuted.

Violet runs at the Charing Cross Theatre from Monday 14th January 2019.
