Jerry Springer musical threatened by Christian group

Jerry Springer
There goes trash talk show host, Jerry Springer's chance at becoming at Broadway star. The musical based on his show, "Jerry Springer - The Opera", may be cancelled after an Evangelical Christian group expressed severe distaste for it. The musical had played in England and was quite successful until it ran on the BBC. The network received more than 40,000 complaints before the show even aired. This may have been how the production's current opposition, the Wales-based Christian Voice, found out about it. The criticism comes from the play's depiction of abortion, homosexuality and Jesus in a diaper. It had been announced last April that the production would run on Broadway in the fall. The future of "Jerry Springer - The Opera" is now in doubt, however, as no official date has been set for the US debut. A British tour will continue as scheduled, though. Phew.
