Off-Broadway’s award-winning The Silence of the Lambs parody, Silence! The Musical, has extended again at the Elektra Theatre through September 1. Starring Sean McDermott and Laura Jordan, the sidesplitting musical features a book by Hunter Bell, music and lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan, and direction and choreography by Tony winner Christopher Gattelli.
In Silence! The Musical, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, in order to catch the mysterious serial killer known only 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.
In addition to McDermott and Jordan, Silence! co-stars David Ayers, Callan Bergmann, Ashlee Dupré, Howard Kaye, Jeffrey Kuhn, Topher Nuccio, Ronica V. Reddick, Kimberly Stern, Natalie Joy Johnson and Chuck Ragsdale.
Silence! includes set design by Scott Pask, costume design by David Kaley, lighting design by Jeff Croiter and sound design by Carl Casella.
