Jerry Springer opera bleeps its way to St. Louis

"Jerry Springer: The Opera" is promoted as "very adult." It's so adult that we can't find a clip suitable for radio. 

"Jerry Springer: The Opera" opened in 2003 in London. The first U.S. performance was in Las Vegas in 2007. Now the New Line Theatre is bringing the opera to St. Louis in March.

On Friday, "Cityscape" host Steve Potter talked about the opera with Scott Miller, New Line Theatre's artistic director, and Keith Thompson, who plays Jerry Springer in the opera.
