New Tammy Faye Musical!

Sally is proud to announce that Greene Light Stage are co-producing the upcoming musical about the life of Tammy Faye, along with Elton John and Rocket Stage.

Baz Bamigboye for the Daily Mail:

"The second coming of televangelist Tammy Faye Bakker — she of the outlandish fluttery eyelashes — will soon be upon us, thanks to Elton John.

Tammy shone in a telereligious world dominated by men.

The rock superstar told me yesterday how he and the Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears spent the past eight years studying the life and times of Tammy Faye and first husband, preacher Jim Bakker...

Elton and Jake have been joined by playwright James Graham, who delivered the book for the show, tentatively titled Tammy Faye — A New Musical, six weeks ago. In writing it, Elton said he and his collaborators have taken influence from gospel, country and rock ’n’ roll...

David Furnish, Elton’s husband, worked with Joseph Smith, who runs the couple’s Rocket Stage division of their Rocket Entertainment empire, to put on a reading in London of the Tammy Faye musical."
