Hey L.A. Friends, Go See “Silence! The Musical” Now!!!

Hey L.A. readers, I have got a hilarious treat for you. There is a brand new uproarious, possibly offensive and ridiculously hysterical new musical in town. No, I’m not talking about The Book of Mormon (but that is a great one). I’m actually talking about the new L.A. run of the off-Broadway smash Silence! The Musical which, yes, is based on the Oscar-winning film The Silence of the Lambs. It opens tonight at the Hayworth Theatre.
I saw the show in a preview last night and was rolling in my seat the whole time. It’s simply a laugh riot with a flawless ensemble including one of my good friends Kathy Deitch who is wonderful and plays several roles including that poor girl at the bottom of the well, Katherine Martin. In the lead roles of Hannibal Lector and Clarice Starling are Broadway superstar Davis Gaines and TV vet Christine Lakin (best known for her long run on Step by Step). Both actors do a fantastic job and Lakin’s take on Jodie Foster’s lisping Southern accent is brilliant and will have you in stitches. Stephen Bienskie also reprises his roles from the NYC production including his dirty fun take on serial killer Buffalo Bill. And there are more treats for you reality competition fans as season 3 American Idol standout Latoya London and season 5 naughty ballerina Melissa Sandvig from So You Think You Can Dance are also in the cast. Oh, and one more shout out to ensemble member Jeff Hiller, a theatre and TV vet, who is just astoundingly funny throughout the show. For more on this great cast and the show, head to the Silence! the Musical website here. And check out the show info below. I highly recommend this incredibly fun show that will make you giggle, blush, guffaw, and amuse you to no end.
