The Ringwald Theatre in Ferndale is proud to conclude its 10th Anniversary Season with the Michigan premiere of Silence! The Musical with book by Hunter Bell and music and lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan.
Based on the Oscar-winning 1991 film, Silence! The Musical tells the story of rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling who 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 Lecter’s clues before another innocent girl is killed.
This laugh-out-loud naughty satire features a singing chorus of floppy-eared lambs, dueling (and duet-ing) killers, and such songs as “Are You About a Size 14?”, “Catherine Dies Today”, and “Stuck in the Dark With a Maniac.”
Fueled by a rabid cult following, Silence! The Musical shattered every box-office record at the Fringe NYC Festival and went on to win the Off-Broadway Alliance Award for Best Musical in 2012 and was named by Time Magazine as one of the 10 Best Shows of the Year.
Joe Bailey directs, with musical direction by Jeff Bobick, and choreography by Molly Zaleski.
