The libretto for the musical wrote H. Bell, music and lyrics belong to the composers-brothers Jon and Al Caplan. The show is a parody of the Oscar-winning film of 1991 ‘Silence of the Lambs’. It is in a comedic manner tells about the FBI agent Clarice Starling, forced to consult with the maniac doctor-cannibal to get on the trail of another dangerous criminal.
Development of the project began in 2003. It was originally planned to make the Internet-musical consisting of only 9 long songs. The latter should have to retell the main story. The idea was partly realized, but then the creators have decided not to limit themselves to a small musical performance, and came to the idea of creating a full-fledged production. Off-Broadway premiere took place in August 2005. The venue has been chosen Lucille Lortel Theatre, NYC. The show of director C. Gattelli lasted in run for a little more than two weeks and was closed in the same month. In the period from 2009 to 2011, the world saw the London’s version of the play, as well as the return on the off-Broadway’s stage.
In 2012 took place one of the most successful productions. All 67 pieces have been shown in the Hayworth Theatre, LA. The main roles in this version performed C. Lakin (depicting agent Starling) & D. Gaines (H. Lecter). The play won the three LA’s Drama Critics Circle Awards. In particular, were marked choreography, music and acting of the leading characters.
