Sutton Foster & Colin Donnell Preview Broadway Musical 'Violet'!

Sutton Foster poses for photos while attending a sneak peek preview party for her new Broadway musical Violet on Tuesday (March 4) at Hill Country BBQ Market in New York City.

The 38-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-stars Colin Donnell, Joshua Henry, and more.

Here is the synopsis for the show: Violet tells the story of a young woman’s quest for beauty amidst the image-obsessed landscape of the 1960s. Facially disfigured in a childhood accident, Violet dreams of a miraculous transformation through the power of faith. Convinced that a televangelist in Oklahoma can heal her, she hops a Greyhound bus and starts the journey of a lifetime. Along the way, Violet forms unlikely friendships with her fellow riders, who teach her about beauty, love, courage and what it means to be an outsider.
