This offbeat and inspiring musical introduces us to Violet, a devout young woman who embarks upon a cross-country quest in hopes of finding a miracle to heal her facial disfigurement. Set against the backdrop of America’s Civil Rights Act of 1964, Violet’s reflections on her own childhood are intertwined with the invaluable lessons she learns from those she meets along the way on her life-changing pilgrimage. This heart-stirring musical soars with emotion and features a lively score heavily flavored with country, gospel, blues, and honky-tonk rock. Don’t miss this life-affirming and toe-tapping tale of self-discovery!
