Wicked's David Ayers Returns to Off-Broadway's Silence! The Musical Nov. 20
By Andrew Gans
David Ayers returns the role of serial killer Buffalo Bill Nov. 20 in Off-Broadway's Silence! The Musical at the new Elektra Theatre in Times Square.
He joins a cast that currently features Pamela Bob, Harry Bouvy, Ashlee Dupré, Natalie Joy Johnson, Howard Kaye, James Moye, Topher Nuccio, Ronica V. Reddick, Kimberly Stern and Doug Trapp.
David Ayers has starred on Broadway in Wicked (as Fiyero), Fiddler on the Roof (Fyedka) and Mamma Mia! (Sky).
Silence! features a book by Hunter Bell, music and lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan and direction and choreography by Christopher Gattelli.
"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.
