Silence! The Musical — billed as the "unauthorized parody of 'The Silence of the Lambs'" — continues to draw a steady stream of celebrity audience members to Theatre 80. On the weekend of Aug. 5 both James Earl Jones and Lea DeLaria attended the show separately.
The Silence! cast was particularly thrilled to have the opportunity to congratulate James Earl Jones in person on his upcoming 2011 honorary Academy Award. He responded by saying that he'd love to make a future guest appearance in Silence! as one of the lambs, which he proved by putting on a set of the costume designer's lamb's ears to pose for photos! The show, which features Callan Bergmann, Stephen Bienskie, Harry Bouvy, Ashlee Dupré, Deidre Goodwin, Jeff Hiller, Howard Kaye, and Lucia Spina, has extended its run due to popular demand.
Here's a look at the cast with Jones and DeLaria.
