Silence! The Musical Will Welcome The Little Mermaid's Tyler Maynard
By Andrew Gans
Silence! The Musical, which recently resumed performances Off-Broadway at the Elektra Theatre, will welcome Tyler Maynard to the role of the hapless Sgt. Pembry beginning May 4.
Tyler Maynard, who was honored as Outstanding Breakthrough Actor at the 2005 Theatre World Awards for his performance in Altar Boyz, has been seen on Broadway in Mamma Mia!, The Little Mermaid (as Flotsam), Mary Poppins and On a Clear DayYou Can See Forever.
He will join a cast that includes Sean McDermott as Hannibal Lecter, Laura Jordan, David Ayers, Callan Bergmann, Ashlee Dupré, Howard Kaye, Jeffrey Kuhn, Topher Nuccio, Ronica V. Reddick, Kimberly Stern, Natalie Joy Johnson and Chuck Ragsdale.
It was also recently announced that tickets for the acclaimed musical are now on sale through Sept. 1.
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.
The musical offers performances Saturdays at 2 PM and 7 PM and Sundays at 5 PM.
Elektra Theatre is located at 673 Eighth Avenue at 42nd Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or through SilenceTheMusical.com.
