Reviews...Press Quotes from the New York Production


New York Times

"An exuberantly gross spoof!
SUBVERSIVELY FUNNY -
DELIRIOUSLY TASTY!
Don't bring Grandma, please!
So vulgar it makes those naughty
ditties in "The Book of Mormon"
seem like trunk songs dropped
from "The Sound of Music."
A HILARIOUS takedown!"

"This 'Lambs'  parody is as 
IRREVERENT, FILTHY
and FUNNY as The book of 
Mormon! The difference is you
can afford the tickets!"  

 

 

 

Daily News

"This LEWD, LYRICAL & 
LAUGH-YOUR-BUTT-OFF
musical parody of The Silence
of the Lambs shines bright!"


 

ABC News

"The unauthorized parody
of the film that made
Hannibal Lecter a household
name IS SURE TO KEEP
THEATERGOERS ON
THE EDGE OF THEIR 
SEATS, although the only 
scary thing about this show is 
how consistently amusing its
GOOFY brand of humor is.
Silence! masterfully taps into
the kind of silly but raw, say-
anything appeal that made the
musical "Avenue Q" a big hit.
The strength of "Silence!" is in
its clever, catchy songs and well-
rounded cast."

"PUNGENT, PUNCHY
and RAUNCHY! Campy,
cheerfully vulgar! Silence! The 
Musical is ideal summer fare...
sweet, tangy and very, very
tasty... the consummately sill
Silence! WILL LEAVE YOU 
WANTING MORE!"


 

Theatermania

"PREPARE TO SCREAM
WITH LAUGHTER!
COMIC MAYHEM - SIZZLES
WITH HILARITY!
SIMPLY SIDESPLITTING!
DELIRIOUSLY FUNNY!
It's the sort of campy
theatrical treat that might have
theatergoers returning again and
again, just to savor its tuneful
delirium!"


 

Time Magazine

"A clever send-up of 
shock-movie clichés, and
even of theater itself.
A LOT OF FUN!"  

New York Post

"A TASTY TREAT!
VIVACIOUSLY VULGAR
musical spoof. PRICELESS
PERFORMANCES - 
WICKEDLY SATRICAL...
GLEEFULLY SUBVERSIVE...
a hell of a lot funnier the it has 
a right to be."


 

Newsday

"HIGH-LEVEL SILLINESS...
SHREWD AND SHAMELESS!
Lots of clever throwaways,
plenty of gifted performers and
enough of the 1991 creepiest movie 
to please most of the camp-
indulgent among us."

"A NONSTOP LAUGH-
OUT-LOUD EXPERIENCE...
HILARIOUSLY
INAPPROPRIATE! The
number of jokes this show
packs in is staggering, you won't 
want to miss one!"
