Jerry Springer the Opera by Richard Thomas and Stewart Lee

Jan 25, 2008 - Feb 10, 2008

By Richard Thomas and Stewart Lee

Iowa Premiere Production

JerrySpringPosterLSGet ready for the musical ride of your life! This bold, controversial new work mixes high art and low culture — opera and daytime television — in an operatic farce that’s by turns hilarious and heartbreaking. At first, talk-show host Jerry Springer seems to be having an ordinary day — outrageous guests, sordid secrets and a media-hungry audience. But after a surprise visit from Satan, Jerry’s soul (yes, apparently he has one) becomes the battle ground for an epic battle of good versus evil. JERRY… JERRY … JERRY!
