So much fun
2 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Despite my dislike for The Jerry Springer Show, Jerry Springer: The Opera actually sparked my interest starting with my lifelong love for the genre. First things off, it is not a conventional opera, but it is so much fun to hear and watch. The choreography is very nifty and jazzy, and the production values look very good complete with clear camera angles and sound. The lyrics are daring and very funny and the music while consisting mainly of brief riffs sticks in your head for a long time. The characters and story are also interesting and entertaining. David Soul is excellent in the title role and all the other roles are performed with gusto. Overall, fun and worth watching at least once. 10/10 Bethany Cox
