An exhilarating musical that was recently revived on Broadway, starring Sutton Foster as Violet, a young women who was disfigured as a thirteen year old girl.  Her disfigurement colors her entire childhood and she vows one day to get it healed with the help of a televangelist.  Her journey takes her from her home in North Carolina to Oklahoma, and along the way, she meets some fellow travelers who change her life.  A heartwarming story of the power of love and faith. - See more at: http://www.nhcc.edu/student-life/performing-visual-arts-events/theatre-productions#sthash.Di0BTzYU.dpuf
