IT'S blasphemous and scandalous - and Jerry Springer the Opera is coming to town. Nearly everyone in the land has seen an episode of The Jerry Springer Show. You can count on there being a betrayed wife who has also been having an affair with her husband's granddad, or some equally as complicated yet sadly true story. Just take this, add some tap shoes and a battle between Jesus and Satan, and you're pretty much there for the opera. This is not for the fainthearted - prepare to be shocked, appalled and enthralled. It is admired as the most unique musical universally. Making history, it received all possible awards for Best Musical at The Olivier Awards, The Critics' Circle Theatre Awards, The Evening Standard Awards and The What's On Stage Awards. American-born actor Rolf Saxon stars as Jerry Springer. He is widely known for his roles in Hollywood blockbusters such as Saving Private Ryan, Mission Impossible and Tomorrow Never Dies. He is also a respected West End theatre actor, appearing in Chicago and The Graduate among others. And Jerry's final thought for the day? He wished he had have thought of it himself! - Jerry Springer the Opera is staged at the Cambridge Corn Exchange on Monday, April 10 to Saturday, April 15.
