TAMMY FAYE Will Hit Broadway In The 2024-2025 Season
God bless Tammy Faye! This morning it was announced that the Almeida Theatre production of Tammy Faye will premiere at a Nederlander Theatre on Broadway in the 2024-2025 season.
With music by Elton John and lyrics by Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, Tammy Faye features a book by James Graham and will be directed by Olivier Award-winner Rupert Goold.
From a studio in South Carolina, Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker revolutionized religion. Preaching to millions 24 hours a day, Tammy just wants to put the fun back into faith. But a new wave of ministers wants you not to just feel God in your heart, but in your homes, in your schools, and in the law too.
The new musical will feature choreography by Lynne Page and orchestrations by Tom Deering and Mark Dickman. The production will feature scenic design by Bunny Christie, costume design by Katrina Lindsay, lighting design by Neil Austin, sound design by Bobby Aitken, and video design by Finn Ross.
Tammy Faye had its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre in the fall of 2022 where it starred Katie Brayben as Tammy Messner and Andrew Rannells, who can currently be seen in Gutenberg!, as Jim Bakker. The production went on to be nominated for 4 Olivier Awards, including Best Musical, with Brayben took home the win for Best Actress in a Musical!
Dates, theatre, and casting will be announced at a later date.
