Senior Excursion : : Brunch in SF & “Violet” | Osher Marin Jewish Community Center

Senior Excursion : : Brunch at the Daily Grill in SF & “Violet”

Sun, February 24, 2019 10:30 am - 5:15 pm

Violet follows a scarred woman who embarks on a cross-country bus trip to be healed by a minister... discovering the true meaning of beauty along the way -- a story that centers on strength, love, awareness, and growth! Winner of the NY Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical when it premiered Off-Broadway in 1997, and then on to a Tony-nominated Broadway debut in 2014 with a revised version, Violet is a moving musical featuring show-stopping anthems, ranging from American-roots to folk to gospel. With a score from Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori (Caroline, or Change; Thoroughly Modern Millie; Shrek; Fun Home) and book and lyrics by the acclaimed Brian Crawley (A Little Princess), Violet is inspired by the short story, The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts, astounding critics and audiences alike in two separate decades.
