Jerry Springer: The Opera 

For more than two decades, The Jerry Springer Show has been a source of controversy in America, but nothing compares to the response it got in England. Jerry Springer: The Opera played across the United Kingdom to rave reviews and unprecedented protests, culminating in a BBC 2 airing that elicited an incredible 55,000 complaints. The musical, which is wall-to-wall singing and dancing, begins like any other rowdy episode of the Jerry Springer Show, but takes a bizarre turn when Jerry is shot by a baby-bonneted guest, finds himself in purgatory and is enlisted by Satan to perform a show in Hell. New Line Theatre stages the award-winning show, which opens this week.
