Praise the Lord for Tammy Faye! A new musical about the life of the televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker, composed by Elton John, makes spectacular entertainment from a righteous subject.

Broadway premiere!

Divine news! After a five-star run over in London, this delightful new musical will land in New York in 2024 starring Katie Brayben as Tammy Faye Bakker and Andrew Rannells as as Jim Bakker!

A glittering retelling of the story of Television Evangelist superstar Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker, the show is penned by top playwright James Graham, directed by Rupert Goould, with lyrics from the Scissors Scissors and music by a man as glamourous as Tammy herself, Sir Elton John.

Effusive reviews in London declared the show "Infectious in its music, exuberant in its performances and gloriously kitsch" (The Guardian), and "joyously camp" with a "storming book" (Time Out), will this glorious portrait of the LGBTQ icon be a hit on Broadway? - We're praying for it!

Tammy Faye

Known for her oddball style, over-lacquered looks, and innate kindness, Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker built a veritable tele-evangelist empire following their first tv show, The PTL Club, which debuted in 1974. A heady mix of worship, puppetry and songs, punctuated by donation requests. Tammy's compassionate approach to victims of the AIDS/HIV pandemic during the 1980s brought her to wider public notice and cemented her as an LGBTQ ally, which bucked the trend of most Christian television hosts.
