Coming to Broadway in the 2024-2025 Season

Music by Elton John

Lyrics by Jake Shears

Book by James Graham

Directed by Rupert Goold

Producers Rocket Stage, Greene Light Stage, and James L. Nederlander have announced that the Almeida Theatre production of the Olivier-nominated musical, TAMMY FAYE, will premiere at a Nederlander Theatre on Broadway in the 2024-25 Season.

A “divinely delirious glitz-bomb of a musical” (Financial Times), TAMMY FAYE features music by legendary songwriter Elton John, lyrics by Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, a book by award-winning writer James Graham (Ink, BBC’s Sherwood), and direction by Olivier Award-winner Rupert Goold (King Charles III, Ink).

TAMMY FAYE had its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre in Fall 2022, where it received rave reviews and was nominated for four Olivier Awards, including Best Musical.

TAMMY FAYE will feature choreography by Lynne Page; orchestrations by Tom Deering and Mark Dickman; and music supervision, arrangements and additional music by Tom Deering.

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.

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.

Production dates, theater, and casting will be announced at a later date.
