Violet – Violet

Cotton Wright with Stephane Duret, photo by David Garten“The theme is accepting yourself as you are, and the title character shares pure feelings as she learns to believe in herself…Cotton Wright plays Violet with steady attention to the character’s sense of suffering…Her best moments are during her own fantasies. When Violet describes her hopes for physical beauty to Monty and Flick in “All to Pieces,” she eagerly points to magazine pictures of movie stars and relishes imagining her transformation. And her scene with the Preacher goes beyond gospel cliché to the essence of longing.” – Seven Days | Vermont’s Independent Voice

“Violet and a younger version of her are a powerful duo. Played by Cotton Wright and Victoria Fearn, their voices and performances are over the top.” – The Valley Reporter

“Cotton Wright sang well and was particularly feisty and sympathetic as the troubled and determined Violet.” – Rutland Herald
