I have very little expectations and was very plesantly surprised! The show was genuinely funny and very innovative. The simple sets were very well thought out, and the actors were, without exception, excellent. I have already recommended this...continued

Ridiculously silly, but very funny. And well sung and well acted. (You have to know the "Silence Of The Lambs" film for it to make any sense or to hold your attention.)

Description

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.
