News   PHOTO CALL: Brent Barrett, Jenn Harris and Stephen Bienskie Rehearse Silence! The Musical
 
Silence! The Musical — billed as the "unauthorized parody of 'The Silence of the Lambs'" — starring Brent Barrett and Jenn Harris, will begin performances on June 24 for a run through Aug 13.

Directed and choreographed by Christopher Gattelli, the cast will be headed by Brent Barrett and Jenn Harris as Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling, with Stephen Bienskie, Harry Bouvy, Deidre Goodwin, Jeff Hiller, Howard Kaye and Lucia Spina.

Silence! The Musical features a book by Hunter Bell and music and lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan.

Here's a look at the cast in rehearsal:


 

In the Academy Award-winning film "The Silence of the Lambs," press notes state, "rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill. Clarice must face her own demons and race the clock to unlock Lecter’s clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Bill. It’s a hair-raising thriller that’s kept countless millions on the edges of their seats and permeated the pop lexicon with delightfully creepy quotes like 'I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti' and of course 'It places the lotion in the basket.' And now, at last, this delicate symphony of suspense has been turned on its ear and retold in the only way it can be – as a musical. A singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrates the action; Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin; and even Dr. Lecter, scary as ever, sings about the life he’d like to lead someday outside the prison walls."
