Broadway Rewind: Carolee Carmello Makes a Joyful Noise in SCANDALOUS in 2012

As Broadway remains dark, BroadwayWorld wants to make sure that you still get your theatre fix each and every day until it's back. In our daily series Broadway Rewind, we're uncovering footage from the depths of our archives so that you can relive magical moments of Broadway past!

Today we rewind to 2012, when Scandalous opened at the Neil Simon Theatre, where it played for 29 performances. Led by Carolee Carmello, the musical featured a book and lyrics by Kathie Lee Gifford and music by David Pomeranz and David Friedman. It also starred Edward Watts, Andrew Samonsky, Roz Ryan and George Hearn. The musical was directed by David Armstrong and choreographed by Lorin Latarro.

Scandalous is based on the life of Aimee Semple McPherson (1890-1944), the world's first media superstar evangelist -- a woman whose passion for saving souls equaled her passion for making sensational headlines and attracting overflow crowds of thousands throughout the world. Time Magazine named Aimee Semple McPherson one the most influential people of the twentieth century.

Watch scenes from the musical below!
