Randy Harrison will return to off-Broadway’s Silence! The Musical for three performances only on September 15 and 16. Harrison will once again play Hannibal Lecter’s nemesis, Dr. Chilton, after joining the cast of the musical for a limited engagement this summer. The musical, which parodies the Oscar-winning film Silence of the Lambs, now plays at Times Square’s brand-new Elektra Theatre.
In Silence! The Musical, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling (Jenn Harris) matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter (David Garrison), to catch the mysterious serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill (David Ayers). 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. Silence! features a book by Hunter Bell, music and lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan, and direction and choreography by Tony winner Christopher Gattelli.
Harrison is best known for playing gay artist Justin Taylor on Showtime’s hit series Queer as Folk. Harrison’s theater credits include Boq in Broadway’s Wicked as well as The Singing Forest, Antony and Cleopatra, A Letter from Ethel Kennedy, Red and The Glass Menagerie.
