Come and see America’s favorite talk show host suffer the worst day of his career in this award-winning, smash-hit British musical.
When notorious talk show host Jerry Springer is accidentally shot on the set of his infamous, eponymous TV show, he descends into Hell, where Satan forces Jerry to do a special show featuring suspiciously familiar guests … until God intervenes and demands that Jerry come to Heaven and help God judge humanity.
Jerry Springer: The Opera channels all the mayhem and excitement of the lurid TV talk show that held worldwide television audiences in utter rapture – the perfect fodder for opera. Featuring songs like “Bigger Than Oprah Winfrey” and “Jerry Eleison” – plus a troupe of tap-dancing Ku Klux Klan members – it’s no wonder Jerry Springer: The Opera is called a “shocking, irresistibly funny masterpiece” (London’s The Sunday Times).
