It’s hard to imagine a night at the opera combined with the flying chairs, cat fights and maniacal chanting of The Jerry Springer Show, but now trashy daytime television and high art collide in Jerry Springer: The Opera. The award-winning, eclectic, controversial production—which has toured the United Kingdom, Las Vegas and New York—chronicles Springer’s “worst day on the job,” one that makes Geraldo Rivera’s broken nose on live TV look like a stroll through the park. This one is for adult audiences only, so hire a babysitter and get ready for an offensive, shocking and hilarious adventure in Springer-land.
