TAMMY FAYE'S FINAL AUDITION presented by Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble
Brick Monkey Theater Ensemble presents TAMMY FAYE'S FINAL AUDITION
Written by Merri Biechler
Directed by Dennis Lee Delaney^
Featuring Shelley Delaney* and Chris Mixon*
Scenic and Costume Design by C. David Russell
Lighting Design by Daniel Winters
Wig Design by Mitch Ely

Tammy Faye Bakker (Shelley Delaney) was the sweetheart of Christian TV in the 1980's, until scandal and fraud brought the empire crashing down. As Tammy Faye nears the end of her life, she attempts a comeback. In a fevered dream, she enlists the men in her life (Chris Mixon) to audition for one final TV show. "Tammy Faye's Final Audition" goes beyond the makeup and the tears to the naked truth.

***
"'Tammy Faye's Final Audition' is relentless, a force of energies alternatively touchingly sad and truly funny." --Eames Armstrong, DC Metro Theater Arts, 4-1/2 stars

"The result is funny, entertaining, and surprisingly moving look at the real life behind an unreal celebrity, staged as affectionate satire without condescension or scorn." --Joshua Buursma, Washington City Paper

"Solid directing by Dennis Lee Delaney. Biechler's play...is a swiftly moving and multilayered creative work. C. David Russell's costumes and Mitch Ely's wigs transform the actors into those people we know well."  --Jennifer Perry, BroadwayWorld.com

"Shelley Delaney is fearless, fearsome, and thoroughly transporting. There is nary a moment when she doesn't have you in the palm of her actor's hand, and she takes us to surprising and powerful places. She turns on a dime when called upon. It's a performance that impresses an audience while honoring her subject. Wow." --Christopher Henley, DC Theatre Scene, 5 stars
