PHOTO CALL: Backstage at Jerry Springer Rehearsals

News   PHOTO CALL: Backstage at Jerry Springer Rehearsals The cast of Jerry Springer—The Opera, which plays a two-night engagement at Carnegie Hall Jan. 29 and 30, provided Playbill.com with photos and commentary of the rehearsal process.

Featuring music by Richard Thomas with book and lyrics by Stewart Lee and Thomas, Jerry Springer—The Opera opened at London's National Theatre in 2003 before transferring to the West End's Cambridge Theatre — where it won the 2004 Olivier Award for Best Musical.

Not wanting to miss an opportunity to prepare for my role in Jerry Springer—The Opera, I got a little help from my brother Steve and sister Kathy while home for the holidays. Next on "The Jerry Springer Show" – "Holiday Stress Leads to Christmas Violence and Sibling Rivalry."

I recently read the Jerry Springer script for the first time backstage at Les Misérables. I suddenly realized how much I'm going to miss my simple red vest. Although I do think if Alain Boublil had used a little more profanity, Les Miz would still be running.
Over the holidays I ran into my friend Hedda Lettuce at a concert. Since I'll be playing a transsexual, I couldn't resist asking her for a little advice. The only thing I can share is "the importance of lip gloss." I promised the rest would remain confidential.
