Silence! The Musical?
What if someone created a musical spoof of Silence of the Lambs? Would it be a hilarious hit? The answer is “yes.” It is the 1991 Oscar-winning movie The Silence of the Lambs parodied to the limit, featuring the characters FBI agent-in-training Clarice Starling (played by Jodie Foster in the movie) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (played by Anthony Hopkins). It’s funny beyond belief.
This over-the-top musical-parody of the movie The Silence of the Lambs focuses on Clarice Starling, who is striving to be a FBI agent, and the notorious Hannibal the Cannibal Lecture. Lecture will help Starling track a serial killer if she’ll tell him about her troubled childhood. The spoof takes off from there and features an evening of songs, scenes and hilarity. If you know the movie, you’ll love the musical.
