I was worried about getting crappy seat but they were great seats-third row, center. The way seating is set up, there aren't really any bad seats in the theater.

This was my second time seeing the performance and it was even better the second time around, even knowing what was coming...The performances were stellar...clearly one of the best offerings at Studio Theatre this season.

This is absolutely hilarious! Definitely not for the easily-offended, but if you're not, go see it! The cast was absolutely amazing, the music was incredible, and the humor was just wrong! Fantastic time!

“Achieves nothing less than the transfiguration of trash TV, turning its crass nature into something sublime.” —New York Times

Description

Jerry Springer: The Opera

Music by Richard Thomas

Book and lyrics by Stewart Lee and Richard Thomas

Featuring 21 actors and an 8-piece band, Jerry Springer is the biggest production of The Studio Theatre’s entire season!
