A new musical based on the movie Silence of the Lambs is making its New England debut in downtown Lynn.
From Arts After Hours –
The New England Premiere of Silence! The Musical, written by Jon and Al Kaplan and Hunter Bell will take the stage at Arts After Hours October 7-29 at the LynnArts Black Box Theatre, 25 Exchange Street, Lynn, MA. Tickets are now on sale at artsafterhours.com.
Voted Best Musical of 2012 by the Off Broadway Alliance and one of TIME Magazine’s Top 10 shows of 2012, Silence! is sure to have you screaming with laughter. More than naughty at times, the show features a chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill dances a hoedown, and Dr. Lecter laments behind bars about the life he would like to lead. The New York Times remarked on this show as a “hilarious takedown! Makes those naughty ditties in The Book of Mormon seem like trunk songs dropped from The Sound of Music.”
This award winning musical is directed by James Tallach with musical direction by 2016 Elliot Norton Award winner Tim Lawton and Choreography by Arts After Hours veteran, Nicole Spirito. “We’ve assembled award winning stage and musical directors, an amazing crew and production staff, and local professional actors – all to bring this hilarious, outrageous and bawdy musical to Lynn for its New England Premier and I couldn’t think of a better place to present it than Arts After Hours”, says James Tallach, Director. The cast features local actors Lisa McDonough, Chas Kircher, Jeremiah O’Sullivan, Samantha Gambaccini, Michael Barry, Ariel Sargent, Alexander Colacchio and Ricky DeSisto. “Arts After Hours is pulling out all the stops to make this another amazing production for downtown Lynn – audiences are going to love it,” says Tallach.
This show marks Arts After Hours fifth year of bringing tourists from Salem’s Halloween economy to Downtown Lynn. “Last year we had audience members from every corner of Lynn combined with people from Austrailia, Canada, South Africa and three time repeat visitors from England,” says Corey Jackson, Managing Director of Arts After Hours. “It is a naughty, silly, frighteningly good time every year.”
