OK, Let's Get That Meta Thing Off The Top

Harvey Keitel starring in Jerry Springer: The Opera? Be still, my beating heart! We saw the show when we were living in London, and it was absolutely mind-blowingly over-the-top fantastic. Just thinking about it makes me happy. And I said at the time, there is no way this will ever play on Broadway, and looks like, so far, I was right. (Warning: the link has a huge spoiler in the second paragraph--maybe everyone else knows the plot, but I didn't, and not knowing it felt like a big part of the enjoyment, because at the end of the first act I was thinking, eh, this is going nowhere, and then the second act blew my mind in its epic transgressiveness.)
