"Jerry Springer: The Opera" Set For Playhouse On The Square

Posted By on Mon, Jul 30, 2007 at 4:00 AM

The foul words on TV's Jerry Springer won't be bleeped out when the show comes to Memphis. In fact, they'll be sung.

Jerry Springer: The Opera will premiere August 10 at Playhouse on the Square, located at 51 South Cooper.

The theater's website describes the musical's plot: "As people confess to an assortment of infidelities and guilty secrets, the television host eventually finds himself in a hell of his own making and is called upon to effect a reconciliation between the two ultimate adversaries -- Satan and Jesus."

The show, which will run through September 9th, is the winner of the 2004 Olivier Award for Best Musical. For reservations and ticket information, call 726-4656.
