Very campy ... very crude, but very funny and extremely enjoyable farce.
Definitely helps if you've seen the movie or read the book. For mature audiences due to language. Takes place in a goth, chiller-theater type venue that also boasts a haunted house and a magic show (extra fees), plus full bar with goth decor and wicked drinks!

REALLY funny! I haven't seen the movie since it first came out and this hilarious send-off brought it all flooding back. Very clever staging, acting, writing, music...I wish I'd gone years ago so I could have seen it several times by now.

Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter in order to catch the serial killer known as Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter's clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill.
This laugh-out-loud naughty satire features a singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin. Even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life hed like to lead someday outside the prison walls.
Fueled by a rabid cult following since the songs debuted online in 2002, SILENCE! was expanded into a live stage show and shattered every box-office record at the 2005 FringeNYC Festival. Winner of the NYCFringe's Best Musical Award, SILENCE! The Musical combines whip-smart dialogue and shocking songs to make a musical parody of The Silence of the Lambs that's sure to be popular with seasoned fans of the movie and FBI rookies alike.
