SILENCE! The Musical
*The unauthorized parody of The Silence of the Lambs*
Music & Lyrics by Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan, Book by Hunter Bell
Directed by Jonathan Monk
Music Direction by Randy Moore

When Silence of the Lambs won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1992, the world never knew that it would become the subject of a celebrated musical parody.  Now that musical comes to the Capital City in a hilarious production that’s right on time for Halloween!
Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling (pronounced in the style of Jodie Foster as “Schtarling”) 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 he’d like to lead someday outside the prison walls.
