Ohlook's Late Series continues with one of its most ambitious, most outrageous projects ever, JERRY SPRINGER THE OPERA, the smash-hit, multi-award winning musical that ran to unprecedented rave reviews and standing ovations at the National Theatre in London, after a sold-out run in London’s West End.

 

With music by Richard Thomas, and book and lyrics by Thomas and Stewart Lee, this is an audacious, fearless piece of theatre that brilliantly and hilariously dissects the cultural forces that have kept Jerry Springer on the air all these years, the lives of quiet desperation that explode into public view in Springer’s weirdly nonjudgmental, national confessional.

 

Act I takes a typical outrageous episode of The Jerry Springer Show, complete with betrayals, revelations, shocking secrets, and the rowdiest audience on television, and translates it into the language of opera (with a dash of Broadway and rock). In Act II, the metaphor becomes reality and Jerry Springer goes to hell.This show contains very adult content and language, and is not appropriate for some audiences.
