The musical will make its Broadway debut as part of the 2024-2025 season.
Following its sold-out run at the Almeida Theatre in 2022, it has been confirmed that the musical Tammy Faye is heading to Broadway next year.
Featuring a book by James Graham (Dear England), with music by Elton John (Billy Elliot) and lyrics by Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears (currently starring in Cabaret in the West End), the musical went on to receive five WhatsOnStage Awards nominations and four Olivier nods, taking home the awards for Best Actress in a Musical (for Katie Brayben) and Best Supporting Actor in a Musical (for Zubin Varla) for the latter.
The story centres on the rise and fall of American televangelists Tammy Faye and Jim Bakker as they attempt to revolutionise religion in the United States.
This Broadway transfer is being produced by Rocket Stage, Greene Light Stage and James L Nederlander – with casting, venue and dates for the production yet to be announced.
The creative team behind the production is directed by Rupert Goold (Spring Awakening), with choreography by Lynne Page, orchestrations by Tom Deering and Mark Dickman, music supervision, arrangements and additional music by Deering, 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.
