Joshua Henry and Colin Donnell to join Sutton Foster in 'Violet' on Broadway

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Sutton Foster will get some help for her next trip on Broadway from Joshua Henry and Colin Donnell.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Thursday that Henry, Tony Award-nominated for "The Scottsboro Boys," and Donnell, a veteran of "Anything Goes" and "Jersey Boys," will co-star in the 1960s-era musical "Violet" directed by Leigh Silverman.

The show features music by Jeanine Tesori and a book and lyrics by Brian Crawley. It's based on the short story "The Ugliest Pilgrim" by Doris Betts, which centres on a disfigured woman's journey to feel beautiful again.

Henry will play a black soldier who meets' Foster's character on the road and Donnell plays his friend, a white paratrooper.

Previews begin March 38 with an opening on April 20 at the American Airlines Theatre.
