Silence!: Musical Info & Synopsis


Synopsis:

Silence! takes the iconic suspense of the movie The Silence of the Lambs and transforms it into a darkly comedic musical parody. The plot follows FBI agent Clarice Starling as she matches wits with the brilliant yet insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, in pursuit of the criminal Buffalo Bill. With a chorus of floppy-eared lambs narrating the events and characters breaking into song, Silence! adds a humorous twist to the classic horror story.
