04 Oct 2012
Tony Award nominee Carolee Carmello returns to Broadway this month in the new musical Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson, which begins previews Oct. 13 at the Neil Simon Theatre.
Carmello will reprise the charismatic role that she played last fall in a Seattle tryout. Playbill.com has collected some videos from the Seattle engagement (then titled Saving Aimee), as well as favorite concert and television performances from Carmello's career.
"For Such A Time As This" from Saving Aimee in Seattle.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
