Photo Flash: First Look at Kevin Spirtas and Tyler Maynard in SILENCE! THE MUSICAL

Broadway vets Kevin Spirtas and Tyler Maynard recently joined the cast of the award-winning Off-Broadway smash Silence! The Musicalat the Elektra Theatre in the heart of Times Square. This season has also seen the cast additions of Sean McDermott (as Dr. Hannibal Lecter) and Laura Jordan (as Clarice Starling). Check out photos of the new stars in action below!

2012's Off Broadway Alliance Award winner for Best Musical, Silence! The Musical is the unauthorized parody of THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, with book by Hunter Bell, music & lyrics by Jon and Al Kaplan, and direction & choreography by Tony Award winner Christopher Gattelli. After opening initially at Theatre 80 on July 9, 2011 to unanimous rave reviews, SILENCE! was extended numerous times by popular demand and transferred theatres twice, ultimately landing at the new Elektra Theatre in Times Square which was constructed especially for the show. SILENCE! was also selected by Time Magazine as one of 2011's Top 5 Musicals (on or Off-Broadway).

In the Academy Award-winning film The Silence of the Lambs, rookie FBI agent Clarice Starling matches wits with the brilliant but insane cannibal, Dr. Hannibal Lecter, to catch the serial killer known only as Buffalo Bill. Clarice faces her own demons while racing the clock to unlock Lecter's clues before another innocent girl is killed and skinned by Buffalo Bill. The laugh-out-loud raunchy satire, Silence! The Musical, features a singing chorus of floppy eared lambs narrating the action as Buffalo Bill gleefully dances a hoedown while kidnapping hapless Catherine Martin. Even Dr. Lecter, creepy as ever, sings about the life he'd like to lead someday outside the prison walls.

Created by Jon and Al Kaplan in 2002, Silence! The Musical began as a collection of songs on the internet which immediately attracted a staggering number of fans. The Kaplans' subsequent screenplay Silence! The Musical was adapted by Hunter Bell into a live stage show, which also featured newly composed songs by the brothers. Fueled by a rabid cult following, SILENCE! shattered every box office record at the 2005 FringeNYC Festival, winning the award for Best Musical. SILENCE! met with further success in London and Los Angeles, where the production received three L.A. Drama Critics Circle Awards.

The cast of Silence! The Musical features Sean McDermott, Laura Jordan, David Ayers, Callan Bergmann, Howard Kaye, Tyler Maynard, Sarah O'Gleby, Ronica V. Reddick, Kevin Spirtas, Kimberly Stern, Natalie Joy Johnson, and Kevin Zak.

Produced by Theater Mogul, Silence! The Musical runs 90 minutes with no intermission. The playing schedule is Fridays at 7 PM and Saturdays at 2 & 7 PM at the Elektra Theatre, 669 Eighth Avenue (at 42nd St.) Tickets are available by calling 212-352-3101 or through www.SilenceTheMusical.com.
