COMMENTS:

SILENCE!: The Musical, was one of the most entertaining shows of the
fringe this season. It's parody of Silence of the Lambs was so accurate
it is obvious that the writer obviously did his homework. I loved the
incorporation of the ensemble of lambs which would come in at
intermittent scenes as stage crew as well as played many other
characters in the show. Jen Harris, who played Clarice, was so
committed and hysterically funny. Her comic timing was point on and her
reaction time was perfect. This is true for the rest of the cast as
well. They all had great timing and the cast just seemed to gel.
Further, the choreography was great. SILENCE! had the best dancing I
have scene out of all the Musicals in the Fringe. If you Love Silence
of the Lambs, or just like to laugh you will love this musical!

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

Off-Off/Off Broadway bound. It hits a lot of different audiences, a
bit inappropriate at times, but a great show with a lot of marketing
potential and success in its future.
