Jerry Springer The Opera

I met Ton Zijlstra and his partner Elmine yesterday evening and we went to see the wonderful and bizarre Jerry Springer The Opera. How can I capture this experience in words? The idea of turning his show into Opera is inspired and the sheer hilarity is hard to convey… the vulgarity of the content set in operatic arias. Very funny… and also quite dark in that the relatively upmarket theatre audience becomes ensnared in the whole thing really in much the same way that the audience in the original TV show does. All this plus tap-dancing Ku Klux Klan and to top it off a mad chorus of dozens of Jerry lookalikes.

Ton and Elmine seemed to enjoy it even more than I did.
