Starsky & Hutch Star David Soul to Appear in Springer Opera in London
Richard Thomas, who wrote the music, book and lyrics for Jerry Springer: The Opera , said of the television show on which the show is based: "It's got tragedy. It's got violence. There are people screaming at each other and you can't understand what they're saying. It's perfect for opera." The TV series inspired such arias as "Chick With a Dick," "Diaper Man," and "Montel Cums Dirty."
