what the critics are saying
 


“Terrific and heart-stirring.
Sutton Foster dazzles in a
career-redefining performance
, revealing the full range of her expressive gifts. If the time has come for Sutton Foster to take her place among the first rank of Broadway performers, the moment also seems ripe for Violet to be acknowledged as an
enduringly rewarding musical.
– The New York Times


What a wonderful trip it is! An exhilarating musical that purrs from start to finish.”
– New York Daily News


A work of great beauty, resonance, and joy. Sutton Foster is riveting, Colin Donnell is terrific and Joshua Henry brings the house down!”
– New York Magazine


“☆☆☆☆ Violet is reason to rejoice!”
– Time Out New York


“Is there any contemporary musical theater composer more versatile than Jeanine Tesori? Now, Tesori's first (and arguably finest) work, Violet, is getting a beautiful Broadway revival. Rich and soul-stirring. It's impossible not to get swept up.”
– Entertainment Weekly

 


Violet
Original Broadway Cast Recording

Two-time Tony Award-winner Sutton Foster "dazzles in a career-redefining performance," hails The New York Times, "revealing the full range of her expressive gifts. If the time has come for Sutton Foster to take her place among the first rank of Broadway performers, the moment also seems ripe for Violet to be acknowledged as an enduringly rewarding musical.” Foster heads a cast of Broadway stars, including Colin Donnell (Anything Goes, Merrily We Roll Along at Encores!), Alexander Gemignani (Assassins, Sunday in the Park with George) and Tony Award-nominee Joshua Henry (The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, The Scottsboro Boys), in the debut Broadway production of VIOLET, with music by four-time Tony Award-nominee Jeanine Tesori (Fun Home) and book and lyrics by Brian Crawley. “A work of great beauty, resonance, and joy," raved New York Magazine of this new production. "Sutton Foster is riveting, Colin Donnell is terrific and Joshua Henry brings the house down."  New York Daily News cheered, "What a wonderful trip it is! An exhilarating musical that purrs from start to finish,” while Entertainment Weekly called it "a beautiful Broadway revival. Rich and soul-stirring. It's impossible not to get swept up." Now, PS Classics is delighted to preserve Roundabout Theatre Company's acclaimed production in a deluxe two-disc set.
