BWW Review: Technically Superior VIOLET at ArtsWest Lacks Emotional ConnectionBWW Review: Technically Superior VIOLET at ArtsWest Lacks Emotional Connection
by Jay Irwin - Mar 14, 2016

There's no doubt that Jeanine Tesori's music in the musical "Violet", currently playing at ArtsWest, is stirring and powerful but it's the lyrics and book by Brian Crawley that truly pack the punch in the show. But of course they would as the show is rife with hot button topics of that era as well as our own. And while the ensemble manages some of the tightest and most technically proficient performances I've seen I didn't always get from them the importance or danger associated with the stakes of those issues and so didn't always feel the emotional connection to the story.
