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...continued

Very funny with very talented performers. If you aren't familiar with the movie some of the gags will go over your head.
Sight lines are terrible. Stage is not elevated and so you are looking down a slope. If the person in front of you is your...continued

Hilarious spoof of " the silence of the lambs" movie. There was never a dull moment and i couldn't stop laughing. I recommend this to all, if 18 or older. There is some risque material, but its so funny it works. The theater is small, so no matter...continued

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.

Brilliantly silly, side-splitting send up of the film, including almost all its Byzantine twists and turns. Lead performances accurately capture the speech patterns and voices of the film's lead characters (particularly Hannibal Lecter). Be...continued

It was very, very 'Off Broadway' and not particularly enjoyable.
Some clever songs, and staging.
One could easily skip this and never miss it.

"Silence!" should be silenced. The show was distasteful, crude, and absolutely awful.

The show loosely follows the events of the movie but in a very fresh, funny way. I would definitely recommend seeing it. The theatre is small so all the seats are good. However beware that it's not for kids - it's got adult themes and...continued

Really funny parody. Low budget and small theater, but they made it work. Hannibal Lecter is almost disturbingly on target. Lots of laughs. Would definitely recommend

Very funny musical! There were some scenes that I could not see from my seats as the actors were on the floor, but that was about it.
Everything else was well done and the acting was terrific!
I would recommend this for adults only, not...continued

Without a doubt, the greatest off-Broadway musical in the history of theater. I have seen it 8 times and plan to see it again and again. Connie von Hundertmark

A very entertaining and funny take on Silence of the Lambs, well performed by the cast. As you'd expect, the songs are in pretty terrible taste, so be careful who you invite if you have an extra ticket!

I saw other people's warning that it was profane, but really, if you've sat through Book of Mormon, this is going to seem like a Sunday sermon. We're big fans of the movie, and this musical did the movie justice. The players were great, and the...continued

There was a lot of laughing during the whole show because it was so funny. I hadn't seen the original movie in so long that I had forgotten about a lot of the things they parodied, but it all came rushing back...there's an actual song called "I...continued
