id rather be hobbled by kathy bates herself
13 March 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

dear god, i know i'm not a fan of opera or the theater in general but this was one of the biggest, most insulting and regrettable wastes of me and my partners time.

this is clearly an opera aimed at prim and proper upper class theater goers as it thinks its hilariously daring and provocative with all its swearing but it just isn't, its deliberate and unfunny and it congratulates itself at every turn with sycophantic audience laughter.

at 15 mins i could see it wasn't going anywhere yet i sat through the whole sorry 2 hours of this drivel, 2 hours man.

jerry went to hell in the show, i wish he'd go to hell for real.
