About the Show

Welcome to Broadway Heaven!

The story of a traveling preacher’s wife who beamed into homes with a message of hope… and stole the country’s heart.

It’s the 1970s. As satellites broadcast brand-new cable programming into American homes, millions fall in love with Tammy Faye Bakker – the charismatic wife of pastor Jim Bakker. Together, they build a nationwide congregation that puts the fun back into faith. But, even as Tammy dazzles on screen, jealous rivals plot behind the scenes, threatened by her determination to lead with love.

Wrapped in a joyful and deliriously fun score that could only come from Elton John, with lyrics by Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears, a book by Olivier Award-winning playwright James Graham, and directed by Olivier Award winner Rupert Goold, TAMMY FAYE shines a sparkling light on the generous, loving, often lonely soul behind the illustrious lashes. Reprising their celebrated West End performances, the divine cast is led by two-time Olivier Award winner Katie Brayben as Tammy Faye.

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.

About the Theatre

Palace Theater

1564 Broadway
New York, NY 10018

The Palace Theatre, renowned since its establishment in 1913, has been a coveted stage for performers, signifying a significant milestone in their careers. Originally a preeminent vaudeville venue, it hosted entertainment legends such as Ethel Barrymore, Harry Houdini, Ethel Merman, and Judy Garland. In 1965, it underwent a transformation by The Nederlanders into a legitimate theatre, presenting acclaimed productions including Sweet Charity and Man of La Mancha. Notable stars like Gwen Verdon, Lauren Bacall, and George Hearn graced its stage. Later housing Disney’s Beauty and the Beast and Aida, the Palace Theatre remains a treasured part of The Nederlander Organization’s Broadway theaters, co-owned with Stewart F. Lane. With a seating capacity of 1,740, it continues to shine as a beacon of theatrical excellence.
