Great concept, thought provoking material, execution was ok...sound design was terrible, if more than one actor was singing, it was difficult to hear what else was being said.

Eh, lots of talent clearly, but the humor was just so so.. I know, what did I expect, it is a parody of jerry springer, one of the most depressing and low brow talk shows ever to grace the airwaves.

Quotes & Highlights

Jerry Springer: The Opera… is, in fact, not only an opera but a clever – and sometimes more than clever – piece of art. By turns hilarious and thought-provoking, obscene and moral, it both amuses and instructs. But mostly amuses.” —Boston Globe
“Brassy, offensive, and hilarious… and I wouldn’t have it any other way.” —Boston Herald
“One of the most refreshingly original and genuinely funny theatrical productions of the young 21st century.” —Quincy Patriot Ledger
