JERRY SPRINGER, THE OPERA
Jerry Springer, The Opera is a British musical written by Richard Thomas and Stewart Lee, based on the television show The Jerry Springer Show. The musical is notable for its profanity, its irreverent treatment of Judeo-Christian themes, and surreal images, such as a troupe of tap-dancing Ku Klux Klan members. The musical is completely sung through, with only two exceptions: the title character, Jerry, who speaks throughout the production; and Steve, who has a brief speech.
The musical ran for 609 performances in London from April 2003 to February 2005 before touring the UK in 2006. The production won four Laurence Olivier Awards, including Best New Musical. The first North American performance was at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and has been performed by a number of American regional theatre companies and made its New York City debut in January 2008 at Carnegie Hall with Harvey Keitel starring as Jerry Springer.
Jerry Springer. The Opera is for mature audiences only. No one under 16 will be admitted without an adult parent or guardian. The show contains explicit, graphic and foul lanuage, sexual situation and conversation as well as religous counterpoint.
