Well.. that should be an interesting production. [Mar. 23rd, 2005|12:51 pm]

Producers announced in February that they were still planning to bring the three-year-old London stage show, "Jerry Springer, The Opera" to America in early 2006, despite increasingly vituperative protests of religious groups. The show features "Jerry" mediating confessions in Hell between Satan, God, Jesus, Mary, and various Biblical characters, complete with a raucous audience periodically chanting "Jer-ree! Jer-ree!" Reportedly, 300 to several thousand curse words are in the script (depending on who counts), and the show's Jesus is a pudgy, diaper-wearing gay man who is apparently coprophilic (among the many alleged points of blasphemy). When the BBC televised a showing, it reported 50,000 complaints, with some physical threats directed to the station's staff and their families.

they recieved over 50,000 complaints, most of which i believe before it was shown with the whole thing orchestrated by evangelical groups and 'family rights' campaigners. so the vast majority who complained had not even seen the show................

Interesting. I wonder how they knew what to complain about before it was aired?
