Welcome to the Orange County Premiere of Silence! The Musical!
It’s been 8 years since this award winning musical premiered off-Broadway, and no one’s had the guts to bring it to Orange County – until now!
A laugh-out-loud, smutty, bawdy, raunchy tribute to the iconic movie from 1991, The Silence of the Lambs. Silence! The Musical may in fact be too dirty to even hint at in writing.
Rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter in order to catch the serial killer known as Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecters clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill.
This hilarious and completely inappropriate satire 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.
Fueled by a rabid cult following since the songs debuted online in 2002, SILENCE! was expanded into a live stage show and shattered every box-office record at the 2006 FringeNYC Festival. SILENCE! The Musical combines whip-smart dialogue and shocking songs to make a musical parody of The Silence of the Lambs that’s sure to be popular with seasoned fans of the movie and FBI rookies alike.
NOTE: This show contains racy jokes, vulgar language, filthy songs, sexual gags, full frontal nudity, bad accents and dancing farm animals. Allergic to dogs? No problem! There are no live dogs in this show.
