'Jerry Springer-The Opera' tells the story of a day in the job of world famous talk-show host, Jerry Springer. Jerry has to sort out a number of guests problems; including a man who wants to dress up as a baby, a man with 3 lovers (one of them a transexual) and a fat woman who wants to be a pole dancer. However, on this particular day, something out of the ordinary will happen... Written by
An musically stunning piece of satirical humour and philosophy
I'm not here to tell you the plot, but this show (which I have also seen Live in London) is absolutely wonderful! Of course it's obscene and distasteful in parts, but that is because it's subject matter is the Jerry Springer Show.
As a musical this show has a wonderful storyline, some great characters, some outstanding actors (such as David Bedella as Satan, and Alison Jiear as Shawntel are both amazing actors with stunning voices and vocal ranges), the music and songs themselves are sublime, with some very inventive lyrics and stylings. Also the set is simple yet wonderfully equipped and working.
