Although producers of Silence! The Musical had announced the acclaimed production would end its run Dec. 30 at the Elektra Theatre, ticket demand has encouraged them to reopen the show beginning Jan. 18, 2013, at the same venue.
Silence!, which opened at Theatre 80 on July 9, 2011, was originally announced as a limited engagement through Aug. 13, 2011. The production was extended numerous times and transferred theatres twice, ultimately landing at the new Elektra Theatre.
"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 faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter's clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill. The laugh-out-loud wicked satire, Silence! The Musical, 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."
Music supervisor is Mark Hartman, with orchestrations by Brian J. Nash.
Silence! is produced Off-Broadway by Theater Mogul.
Elektra Theatre is located at 673 Eighth Avenue at 42nd Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or through SilenceTheMusical.com.
