JERRY SPRINGER: THE OPERA |  Show Website

Music & Lyrics by Richard Thomas

Book & Additional Lyrics by Stewart Lee & Richard Thomas

Choreography by Chis Bailey

Directed by John Rando


Jerry! Jerry! Jerry! It’s “The Jerry Springer Show” as you’ve never seen it before, with passionate arias, soaring ballads, and giant production numbers. While the studio audience cheers, a parade of bickering guests fight and curse, until violence breaks out and Jerry must face his trickiest guest ever, the devil himself. Deeply in tune with the chaos and unrestrained id of our times, Jerry Springer – The Opera, a gleefully profane musical by Richard Thomas (Music, Book, Lyrics) and Stewart Lee (Book, Additional Lyrics) is an outrageous celebration of our national ritual of public humiliation and redemption. Jerry Springer – The Opera, winner of numerous awards including an Olivier Award for best new musical, will have its Off-Broadway premiere in this production from The New Group, choreographed by Chris Bailey and directed by John Rando.

A brilliant musical comedy, The Royal Family of Broadway is a masterful love letter to the Great White Way.  Set in the 1920's and loosely based on the legendary Barrymores, it centers around the Cavendish family of actors: an aging imperious grande dame, a Broadway star looking for love, a self-centered boozy leading man who has fled to Hollywood, and a promising ingenue - each having to make pivotal choices in their lives.  A brand new musical from the creators of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and the team that brought you On the Town and The Pirates of Penzance.
