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!

Description

Jerry Springer: The Opera

Music by Richard Thomas

Book and lyrics by Stewart Lee and Richard Thomas

Directed by Keith Alan Bake

From its phenomenal success in London, Jerry Springer: The Opera is finally coming to America! The hijinks and hilarity of daytime television meet the epic storytelling of opera. When an ordinary broadcast ends in violence, this award-winning musical extravaganza follows talk show host Jerry Springer to the afterlife and beyond.

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