24 Feb 2012
Brent Barrett, Jenn Harris and the entire cast of Silence! The Musical celebrated that show's original cast recording Feb. 23 at the Upper East Side Barnes & Noble in Manhattan.
The 5 PM event, with musical direction by Brian J. Nash, featured selections from the musical parody of the classic film "The Silence of the Lambs." Cast members were also on hand to autograph copies of the CD.
Silence! The Musical, with book by Hunter Bell, music and lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan, and direction and choreography by Christopher Gattelli, is currently playing The 9th Space Theatre at Performance Space 122, 150 First Avenue.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
