Saving Aimee and hits the 5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, WA, Closed October 30, 2011
The 5th continues its tradition of bringing fresh new work to the musical theatre stage with the Northwest premiere of Saving Aimee. This new musical, with book and lyrics by Kathie Lee Gifford and music by David Pomeranz and David Friedman, explores the spectacular rise and fall of evangelist Sister Aimee Semple McPherson.
This is the powerful true story of 1920's evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson, who catapulted to unexpected stardom as the founder of the first mega-church and a media empire. The rise and fall of a woman cloaked in intrigue, embroiled in scandal, and at the heart of one of the nation?s first sensationalized trials, Saving Aimee, celebrates the unstoppable force of a powerful woman inspired to great heights in a man's world.
