Silence! The Musical Will Welcome Chaplin's Sarah O'Gleby
01 May 2013
Silence! The Musical, which plays Off-Broadway's Elektra Theatre, will welcome Sarah O'Gleby to the cast beginning May 4. As previously reported, Kevin Spirtas (Dr. Hannibal) and Tyler Maynard (Sgt. Pembry) will also join the cast that same day.
O’Gleby, who will will be the new Dream Clarice, has been seen on Broadway in How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying; Promises, Promises; and Chaplin.
The cast is headed by Sean McDermott as Hannibal Lecter with Laura Jordan (as Clarice Starling), David Ayers, Callan Bergmann, Howard Kaye, Tyler Maynard, Ronica V. Reddick, Kevin Spirtas, Kimberly Stern and Natalie Joy Johnson.
It was also recently announced that tickets for the acclaimed musical are now on sale through Sept. 1.
"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 669 Eighth Avenue at 42nd Street. Tickets are available by calling (212) 352-3101 or through SilenceTheMusical.com.
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.
