A “so wrong it’s right” musical spoof of the Oscar-winning film The Silence of the Lambs. The show offers a comedic twist to the story of FBI agent-in-training Clarice Starling as she begins interviews with a convicted cannibalistic murderer, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, in hopes of tracking down a serial killer on the loose. Starling believes Lecter may have information about the unknown criminal. A former psychologist, Lecter only agrees to help Starling if she is willing to discuss her troubled childhood. The film is transformed into a full-scale musical, complete with singing serial killers, unprintable titles, and a chorus of tap-dancing lambs.
