Jerry Springer – The Opera is the historic four-time winner of London's Best Musical prizes (Olivier Award, Critic's Circle Award, Evening Standard Award and What's On Stage Award) - no other show in West End history has achieved this distinction.

"Jerry Springer – The Opera is inspired by America's most lurid TV talk show host who brought worldwide television audiences episodes including "Pregnant by a Transsexual," "Here Come the Hookers" and "I Refuse to Wear Clothes." The production originally premiered in London at The National Theatre on April 29, 2003, where it broke all box office records for a new musical. Following its engagement at the National, the show transferred to the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End, where it opened on November 10, 2003.

Tickets for Jerry Springer – The Opera in Concert are $175.00 - $59.00 and are available now through CarnegieCharge at (212) 247-7800 or www.carnegiehall.org or by visiting the Carnegie Hall box office (57th Street & 7th Avenue). The final performance is tonight Wednesday, January 30, 2008 at 8PM.
