Editorial Reviews

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.

I can't seem to take ON MY WAY off of repeat. I have literally listened to it over 300 times. I saw the production twice and hope to see it some more when I get back to NYC. Its quite an amazing show full of so much life and heart. The voices of the supporting cast are quite special especially the Gospel number. I've never heard a theater go more crazy. Tesori is SUCH an amazing composer. If you love this go buy FUN HOME another masterpiece from her catalouge.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Mix of Musical Styles, Top Notch Recording June 21, 2014
Format:Audio CD
If you enjoyed the play you'll find the CD completely satisfying, it's almost like being there. If you didn't see the play, you can read the notes that come with the CD and follow the story. Sutton Foster shines as always.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violet is Sutton Foster in Full Bloom! June 6, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The talented Sutton Foster goes beyond the traditional work as a musical theater performer. Her voice of course is a special instrument. However, the libretto of this play with music demanded superb acting and Ms Foster hit the mark. The supporting cast was also excellent and Ms Tesori's score is memorable

I pre-ordered this CD set and I absolutely love it!! Sutton Foster, Colin Donnell and Joshua Henry are amazing singers and performers. I am in awe of them! The music is heartwarming and honest. But my review is really about the show because to truly appreciate this music it must be experienced in person.

One of the beauties of theater, whether it is Broadway or regional, drama or musical, is that it is the only art form that can wholly envelop the audience in a manner both thoughtful and visceral. In a movie theater a dream is unfolding before you but with actors live on stage you get to live with and through these beautifully flawed people.

The emotional and unforgettable Broadway musical “Violet” allows us to share the journey of a young woman, scared and scarred, as she learns that beauty and self-assurance starts with how you see yourself and touch the world around you irrespective of the shell you live in. There is a piece of this complicated young woman named Violet in all of us. That piece that makes us feel like we are watching life from the outside. A shadow or scar that if we could simply pluck it out of our life, mind, body or heart everything will be okay and the world would understand and accept us.

“Violet” is a raw and sincere musical not an easily digested spectacle. That is why it will stay with you long after you have experienced it. The music is affecting and superb. The entire cast is wonderful but it is the astonishing three leads that make this show “sing”: Sutton Foster (who is NEVER off-stage), Colin Donnell and Joshua Henry. As I write this, you have approximately 8 weeks to see three of the most brilliant performers, stage or screen, that you will ever see in your life and to have the chance to see them together up close and personal is an extraordinary gift. “Violet” is a limited engagement. Please do not wait- you must go see this show!!!
