Tempe events: Stray Cat Theatre: Silence! The Musical

Author: Nancy

Posted on: May 1, 2018


Tempe events include Stray Cat Theatre’s production of Silence! The Musical at Tempe Center for the Arts, May 4-19, 2018.

Silence! The Musical is an award-winning 2005 show written by Jon and Al Kaplan as a parody of the 1991 Academy Award-winning film, The Silence of the Lambs. You’ll find all the same characters who made The Silence of the Lambs such a fascinating and creepy, but enormously entertaining movie.  They are all there in full force and full voice. There’s rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling, the brilliant but insane and very scary cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter and the equally creepy serial killer Buffalo Bill, who murders overweight women so he can remove their skin to create a “woman suit” for himself.

Fueled by a rabid cult following since the songs debuted online in 2002, Silence! has been expanded into a live stage show. Winner of the NYCFringe’s Best Musical Award, Silence! The Musical combines smart dialogue and shocking songs to make a raunchy musical parody of The Silence of the Lambs that’s a purrrfect Stray Cat season closer.
