SILENCE! The Musical is the unauthorized parody of The Silence of the Lambs, with book by Hunter Bell, music & lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan, and direction & choreography by Christopher Gattelli. Silence! is currently playing at New York City’s Elektra Theatre, 669 Eighth Ave., between 42nd and 43rd streets.
SILENCE! The Musical opened July 9, 2011 to unanimous rave reviews and immediately became a sold-out smash hit. In fact it was selected by Time Magazine as one of The 2011 Year’s Top 10 Plays & Musicals along with such lofty company as The Book of Mormon and War Horse.
Originally announced as an eight-week limited engagement, the show’s producers extended the run five times to accommodate the overwhelming demand for tickets. SILENCE! The Musical recently celebrated its 500th New York City performance.
