Directed and choreographed by Mindy Cooper, the readings of the new musical — based on the life of televangelist Tammy Faye Messner — will feature musical direction by Seth Farber. Tony nominee Sally Mayes will lead a cast that also includes Julie Foldesi, Erika Foss, Ken Land, James T. Lane, Heather Parcells, Erin Leigh Peck, Dale Radunz, Tom Stuart and William Youmans.
The Gospel According to Tammy Faye features music and lyrics by JT Buck and a book by Fernando Dovalina. The musical, according to press notes, is "based on a first-hand account of her life as told to the show's creators. . . [It] tells the rags to riches to rags to redemption story of the most famous female televangelist in U.S. history, and features a mix of original music that ranges from gospel to disco to 70s pop to tango to soft country rock. The musical features a cast of characters that includes Jim Bakker, Jessica Hahn, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson and Roe Messner, among others."
The creative team also includes Joe Bowerman (associate director/choreographer) and Mei Ling Acevedo (stage manager).
The presentations are scheduled for Dec. 16 at 7 PM, Dec. 17 at 4 PM and Dec. 18 at 2 PM.
