Stage and screen star Harvey Keitel will play the title role in “Jerry Springer — The Opera in Concert,” which will be presented at Carnegie Hall Jan. 29 and 30, 2008, according to published reports.
As previously announced, Jason Moore (Avenue Q) will direct the concerts with musical direction by Stephen Oremus (Wicked). The Carnegie stint of Jerry Springer will be produced by David J. Foster, Jared Geller and Avalon Promotions.
Producers told the New York Times that should the Carnegie Hall concerts be successful they will consider bringing the controversial work to Broadway.
