You've no doubt heard of the Jerry Springer Show, one of the trashiest, most offensive, most disturbing television programs ever. You may even have realized that it inspired a satirical "opera" developed by Stewart Lee and Richard Thomas that is every bit as profane and blasphemous.
Despite widespread protests, Jerry Springer: The Opera has played in London, on Broadway and in a multitude of other places, including an Easter Week performance in Cambridge, England, where it drew the attention of a good friend, Ian Cooper, Senior Tutor at Christian Heritage Cambridge.
Is the "opera" mere entertainment, a good-natured (though edgy) farce? Or is it something reflective of a deep and dangerous philosophical shift in Western culture?
I think you'll find Ian's penetrating review (located right here) will provide some profound answers.
