Have you got a sense of humour?
on 12 April 2005
I went and saw 'Jerry Springer The Opera' in the West End last August and I had to have the soundtrack! I am a massive musicals fan, and as my usual favourites are classics like Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, I did not expect to adore this show as much as I did.
This is not a musical you should see or a soundtrack you should listen to if you're easily offended, as the content is highly controversial, however, if you have a sense of humour and are willing to take it for what it is - pure comedy, then you will enjoy this!
It is nothing short of genius how the content of this musical can be performed musically as an opera. I left the theatre with the biggest smile on my face which didn't go for hours afterwards, the soundtrack still has the same effect - it has me laughing to myself when I am either listening to it on my ipod, or just thinking about the lyrics!
You don't have to have seen the musical to understand what the soundtrack is all about - it is all there! So if you fancy laughing until you cry, you like musicals and you have an open mind, then this is a soundtrack you should definately hear!
