Scandalous

Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson offers the real-life story of Sister Aimee who was a religious pioneer, hotshot celebrity and eventually a fallen angel, as her scandalous love affairs resulted in her demise. With music by David Pomeranz and David Friedman and book and lyrics by Kathie Lee Gifford, the musical Scandalous provides audiences with a soulful journey through one woman’s heaven and hell.

Synopsis

The musical Scandalous focuses on the life of 1920s superstar evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, who was the first preacher to use groundbreaking media techniques to spread the word about her conservative beliefs and deep religious views.  The Los Angeles based Sister Aimee, as she was known, rose to the highest heights of popularity, only to be brought down be her lust for love affairs.
Scandalous is an interesting character study of a woman who was driven to save souls, loved the spotlight and the crowds and was immensely human in her need for affection. The musical offers insights into McPherson, our society and the media.
