Carolee Carmello (Aimee Semple McPherson)


OVERVIEW

Scandalous: The Life and Times of Aimee Semple McPherson comes to Broadway straight from a successful out-of-town tryout boasting an all-star cast both on stage – including Carolee Carmello in the title role and George Hearn – and backstage: Kathie Lee Gifford wrote the book and lyrics.

Time Magazine named Aimee Semple McPherson one the most influential people of the twentieth century, the world’s first media superstar evangelistbrand new musical based on her life and set in 1920’s Los Angeles, holiness collides with Hollywood in an extraordinary tale of one remarkable woman’s charismatic rise to fame amidst scandalous love affairs and growing controversy, inevitably ending in her much-publicized fall from grace.
