Works & Process at the Guggenheim presents The New Group: Jerry Springer-The Opera on Monday, January 8, 2018 at 7:30pm.
Prior to the Off-Broadway premiere of Jerry Springer-The Opera, co-creatorRichard Thomas (Music, Book, Lyrics; Book & Additional Lyrics by Stewart Lee) and director John Rando discuss the process behind this gleefully profane musical that outrageously celebrates the ritual of public humiliation and redemption. Cast members perform highlights, illuminating the chaos and unrestrained id of our times.

Works & Process at the Guggenheim
Described by The New York Times as "an exceptional opportunity to understand something of the creative process," for over 33 years and in over 500 productions, New Yorkers have been able to see, hear, and meet the most acclaimed artists in the world, in an intimate setting unlike any other. Works & Process, the performing arts series at the Guggenheim, has championed new works and offered audiences unprecedented access to generations of leading creators and performers. Most performances take place in the Guggenheim's intimate Frank Lloyd Wright-designed 285-seat Peter B. Lewis Theater. In 2017, Works & Process established a new residency and commissioning program, inviting artists to create new works, made in and for the iconic Guggenheim rotunda.worksandprocess.org.
