SILENCE

Playbill has announced that Tory Ross and Miles Western will star as Clarice and Hannibal Lecter respectively in the first UK production of Silence!, which features a book by Hunter Bell and a score by Jon and Al Kaplan.

According to press materials, the songs were written in 2003 as a labor of love by the two brothers, who were struggling to break into L.A.’s competitive film composing industry. Their catchy tunes and outrageous lyrics gained a cult online following that culminated in the evolution of the stage show. The London production will feature additional numbers especially written for the U.K.

I must admit that I am not familiar with anything from this show at all. I wonder if it’s as campy as it sounds.
