“It’s time to bring America back to God”

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.

Tammy Faye is a “divinely delirious glitz-bomb of a musical” (Financial Times) from legendary songwriter Elton John, Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears and award-winning writer James Graham (Ink, BBC’s Sherwood), featuring Olivier Award-winner Katie Brayben (Beautiful) as Tammy Faye and Tony Award-nominee Andrew Rannells (The Book of Mormon, Girls) as Jim.

Directed by Almeida Artistic Director Rupert Goold (Spring Awakening), this “spectacularly entertaining” (New York Times) true story, is a testament of faith, resilience and the temptations of success.

God bless Tammy Faye!

Tammy Faye is presented in association with Rocket Stage and Greene Light Stage.

This production is supported by the Ruddock Foundation for the Arts.
