What if, as a young teenager, your face became horribly scarred through a tragic accident? That's what Violet has experienced in Violet: A Musical Pilgrimage, a play put on by the Washington University Performing Arts Department tonight at 8 p.m., tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. (April 27, 28 and 30). When Violet decides to head to Oklahoma via Greyhound bus to have her scars healed, she meets up with a pair of soldiers and learns a little more about herself. But will Violet's scars be repairable? You'll have to go to know. Tickets for this play, staged in the A.E. Hotchner Studio Theatre on the school's campus (6445 Forsyth Boulevard), cost $9 to $15 and can be purchased by calling 314-935-6543 (or through MetroTix at 314-534-1111 or www.metrotix.com). Oh, and this really is a musical: Expect to hear the sounds of '60s-style rock, bluegrass, gospel and country while you accompany Violet on her journey.
Thu., April 27; Fri., April 28; Sun., April 30
