TAMMY FAYE’S FINAL AUDITION, Scenic and Costume Design
By: Merri Biechler
Tantrum Theater, Dublin, Ohio
Directed by Dennis Lee Delaney
Lighting Design : Daniel Winters
The premiere play by Merri Biechler depicts Tammy Faye Bakker’s final hours, flowing between life and death. Shifting between reality, memory, and revelation.
This two character play featured Shelley Delaney as Tammy Faye. The costume for Tammy gradually streamlined to a striped down pure version of herself without make up or a wig for the final moment of revelation.
Jonathan Hadley played The Men. Four men that were promanet in her life. Jim Jay Bullock, Jayme Baker,Jim Baker, and Roe Messiner

The request from Director Steve Tague was to create a period specific world with a heightened style and a musical theater attitude.
I used exaggerated 1890’s shapes, bold colors and sumptuous fabrics to meld with Oscar Wilde’s witty text.
