She said that personal ties she has here in the state make her especially excited to visit. “I have some very dear friends who live in Utah,” she said. “They have made me a part of their family.”

She added, “I’ve never been to the BYU campus, but it is home to so many people who I have worked with through the years. I can’t wait to work with the students. Every single time I’ve been in Salt Lake City or Provo, the people are so kind and so welcoming and lovely. As soon as I received the invitation to sing at BYU, I jumped on it.”

New Sutton interview with Vanity Fair
31 May | Posted by Colleen | Filed Under: News

I read a really beautiful piece from a writer on her own facial scars and how she connected so deeply with Violet because she felt like it reflected her own experience. Do you have a lot of people sharing things like that with you?

It’s been very powerful. There was a woman who came to the stage door—I think about her a lot, actually. I’ve had several different experiences. There was a woman who came to the stage door and she was on crutches. She had difficulty walking and she was coming up to me and she said how much the show spoke to her. One of the songs in the show is called Look at Me. Violet sings, “Look at me, can you imagine what it’s like when people look at me?” And how people look at her and stare at her or don’t look at her. It’s this idea that no one actually sees who she is as a person, they see her as a scar. And this woman came up to me and she was like, ‘I’ve actually seen the show three times.’ And she goes, ‘look at me.’ And I was like, ‘oh my gosh, oh my gosh.’ She was struggling and I thought, ‘oh wow.’ She talked about how much the show meant to her and how much it spoke to her. The response that we’ve received from the show has been very powerful.
