Silence! The Musical Show Poster

Silence! The Musical Tickets

A so-wrong-it’s-right musical spoof of The Silence of the Lambs—with a book by Hunter Bell and a score by Jon and Al Kaplan. The Fringe Festival winner follows F.B.I. trainee Clarice Starling as she uses her relationship with Dr. Hannibal Lecter to hunt serial killer Buffalo Bill. The film is transformed into a full-scale musical, complete with singing serial killers, unprintable titles and a chorus of tap-dancing lambs.

What Is the Story of Silence! The Musical?
Silence! is a musical parody of the 1991 Oscar-winning movie The Silence of the Lambs. The show offers a comedic twist to the story of FBI agent-in-training Clarice Starling as she begins interviews with a convicted cannibalistic murderer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, in hopes of tracking down a serial killer on the loose. Starling believes Lecter may have information about the unknown criminal. A former psychologist, Lecter only agrees to help Starling if she is willing to discuss her troubled childhood.

"Pungent, punchy and raunchy, with a sheepish chorus to boot, the consummately silly 'Silence!' will leave you stuffed and wanting mutton more."

Time Out New York

David Cote

"As reverential of its source material as it is gleefully subversive, 'Silence! The Musical' is a hell of a lot funnier than it has a right to be."
