Ballet dancer Stephen Hanna will return to the role of Dream Hannibal in off-Broadway’s Silence of the Lambs parody Silence! The Musical beginning January 19 at the Elektra Theatre.
Hanna appeared as Older Billy in the original Broadway cast of the Tony-winning musical Billy Elliot. He later starred as Sid in the national tour of Come Fly Away. Hanna joined New York City Ballet in 1997, and in 2005 was promoted to the rank of principal dancer.
