Clever lyrics, tight musical compositions, and a sick and twisted mind – bring The Silence of the Lambs to the stage.
Ok, not yet – Jon & Al Kaplan have produced this thrilling CD of music for Silence of the Lambs. It’s like Andrew Lloyd Webber musical stylings with a Weird Al sensiblity. I don’t know how else to describe it.
Should I let
Oh my God I’m terrified
If I don’t
I’ll let down the F.B.I.
It may seem “wrong” to adapt such a dark story for a musical…but heck, they’ve had plenty of bloody stories drawn up for Broadway:
- The Legend of Sweeny Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street – the barber goes nutty – starts slicing his customers – his downstairs neighbor bakes the corpses into “meat pies” (Angela Lansbury did a fabulous job with this role)
- Little Shop of Horrors – Audrey Two can’t get enough of human blood and humans…..and some brilliant business dude decided to clone her as houseplant for all American homes
- The Lion King
I would love to see them get somebody like Lea Solanga for Clarice’s role…..maybe Kelsey Grammer can do Hannibal Lecter.
I’m wearing his face on my head…
