Pentecostal Foursquare Church Loses $2 Million on 'Scandalous' Broadway Musical that Flopped

Broadway may love scandal, but it did not love "Scandalous: The Life and Trials of Aimee Semple McPherson," a Foursquare Church-backed production that recently flopped on stage.

The charitable arm of the L.A.-based denomination reportedly invested $2 million into the show that depicted the life of McPherson, the Pentecostal movement's founder. Now the Foursquare Foundation is rearranging its board after top members quit following the show's failure.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "The foundation's executive director, Greg Campbell, left the church within days of the show's closure.... In addition, the church replaced all but one of the foundation board members in part because of dissatisfaction with the decision to invest in a Broadway musical."

However, the church stated "the departures of Mr. Campbell and most of the board were 'unrelated' to the show."
