“Silence! The Musical,” at LynnArts Black Box Theatre through Oct. 29

Arts After Hours at LynnArts Black Box Theatre is presenting “Silence! The Musical,” through October 29 with a cast heavy with Lynners.

‘Silence!’ is a musical stage adaptation of the 1991 film “Silence of the Lambs, which in turn was based on the novel of the same name by Thomas Harris, which brought Harris; character Dr. Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter into pop culture notoriety.

The musical stage adaptation may at first seem like a bit of an odd interpretation and various reviews of the show indicate the material is for mature audiences only, but it has been well-received locally and being that it is so close to Halloween, the gharish subject matter may fit the season perfectly.
