The new musical is set to open at the Almeida Theatre next month.
Rehearsal images have been released for the upcoming world premiere of Tammy Faye, which will begin performances at the Almeida Theatre from the 13th October. This new musical has been written by Elton John, James Graham and Jake Shears.
From a studio in South Carolina, Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker revolutionised 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 cast is set to be led by Kelly Agbowu, Amy Booth-Steel, Katie Brayben (in the titular role), Ashley Campbell, Peter Caulfield, Danny Collins, Richard Dempsey, Fred Haig, Georgia Louise, Andrew Rannells, Robyn Rose, Nicholas Rowe, Martin Sarreal, Steve John Shepherd, Gemma Sutton and Zubin Varla.
This new musical is directed by Rupert Goold, with the creative team also including choreographer Lynne Page, designer Bunny Christie, costume designer Katrina Lindsay, lighting designer Neil Austin, sound designer Bobby Aitken, musical supervisor co-orchestrator and arranger Tom Deering, co-orchestrator Mark Dickman, video designer Finn Ross, musical director Oli Jackson and casting directors Pippa Ailion and Natalie Gallacher.
Tammy Faye will play at the Almeida Theatre from the 13th October until the 3rd December.
