2014 TONY NOMINEE – BEST MUSICAL REVIVAL

In celebration of our 25th Anniversary, we are pleased to present the new Broadway version of one of the most popular shows in SpeakEasy history, the musical Violet. Featuring a powerful folk, rock, and gospel score, this soul-stirring musical, set in 1964, tells the story of a young North Carolina woman who travels by bus to Tulsa to see a faith-healer she thinks can transform her life. Along the way, she forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, and learns that it’s the journeys you take in life that help you discover who you are.

Running time: 1 hour and 45 minutes, performed without an intermission.
