'Jerry Springer' Comes To Broadway Fall 2005


Recommended Posts

Opera Was Hit In London

You have to wonder if they'll have security guards, jealous girlfriends and transvestites in the opera version.

"Jerry Springer -- The Opera" is coming to the U.S. next year, after a hit run in London.

The production will play for six weeks in San Francisco before hitting Broadway.

The show about Springer and his raunchy talk extravaganza won the British version of a Tony for best musical. True to the actual show, the stage version features tap-dancing Ku Klux Klansmen, blue language and a parade of low-life guests.

Springer himself is shot at the end of the first act and dragged down to hell.

Springer saw the show in London and praised the production -- while distancing himself from the Springer portrayed in it.

So I don't want to hear anything about the superiority of British taste.
