& BEST MUSICAL DIRECTION
at the 2015 Sydney Theatre Awards.
Violet – The Musical from the Tony Award-winning Jeanine Tesori with a libretto by Brian Crawley.
With show-stopping anthems ranging from American roots to folk to gospel, it follows a truly original woman who on her quest across America for divine intervention finds a very different kind of salvation. If Chekhov, Lena Dunham and Aretha Franklin conspired to write a musical, this would be it.
Facially scarred as a child in an accident, Violet undertakes her search for beauty amidst the image obsessed landscape and racial tensions of the American South in the 1960s. Journeying across the country with a rag bag of fellow travellers, she discovers that true beauty is not always in the eye of the beholder.
With a vibrant, multi-genre score by Jeanine Tesori (Caroline or Change, Thoroughly Modern Millie, Shrek The Musical), and libretto by Brian Crawley (The Little Princess), Violet encompasses show-stopping anthems, American roots, soul and gospel.
To be presented at Chapel off Chapel in March 2016, Violet is to be directed by Australian theatre icon Mitchell Butel with Musical Direction by Martine Wengrow, Choreography by Amy Campbell (Guilty Pleasures, So You Think You Can Dance) and Set Design by Simon Greer (Man of La Mancha).
