7:00 PM Stage: Violet in Concert Coronado Playhouse stages a concert version of "Violet," a musical based on Doris Betts short story, "The Ugliest Pilgrim," and with a score by Tony-winning composer Jeanine Tesori ("Fun Home," "Thoroughly Modern Millie," "Shrek The Musical").

"Violet" is the emotional journey of a disfigured girl traveling through the segregated American South in the 1960s, to meet a televangelist who she hopes can make her beautiful. On her long bus ride, Violet meets two soldiers on their way to Vietnam. Her relationships with them are key to her emotional awakening.

The music encompasses country, gospel, blues, and honky-tonk rock. Violet opened off-Broadway in 1997 and won the Drama Critics' Circle Award and Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical. When it opened to rave reviews on Broadway in 2014, it was a Tony nominee for Best Musical.
