About Jerry Springer - The Opera:

Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! It’s “The Jerry Springer Show” as you’ve never seen it before, with passionate arias, soaring ballads, and giant production numbers. While the studio audience cheers, a parade of bickering guests fight and curse, until violence breaks out and Jerry must face his trickiest guest ever…. Deeply in tune with the chaos and unrestrained id of our times, Jerry Springer – The Opera is a gleefully profane musical and an outrageous celebration of our national ritual of public humiliation and redemption.

Our Jerry Springer - The Opera Review

Going into Jerry Springer – The Opera, I was concerned that it might feel dated. After all, it was first produced 15 years ago and is based on a talk show that has been around since 1992. I should not have been worried. Raunch never goes out of style and this work is as hilariously and unapologetically dirty as can be.
