"Had a great great time seeing this show in LA at night. Leave the kids (and maybe the parents) at home, but definitely catch Jesse Merlin and the rest of the talented cast if you can." - Clark Collis

"Do not miss this show!!! Hilarious show and fantastic cast!!!! Bravo and congratulations!!!" Ros C.

"Silence! was amazing! Great job and best of luck to the cast and crew for the rest of your run!" - Abigail H.

 

"Going to be in or around LA between now & Nov 3rd? Treat yourself to SILENCE! The Musical. SO Good! Smart. Funny. Clever.
I may have to come back again before it closes." - Peter R.

 

"Silence! was extremely good, and I’m going again. I urge you to do the same. @bucketlistshows did an incredible job opening night."

- Lauren C.

 

"Alot of fun!!! I had such a good time!!!" - Kato D.

"I had the best of times and laughed SO hard. Had me laugh crying." - Jason L.

"We llaughed our asses off!" - Rod H.

"Such a wonderful and entertaining show last night! So many moments I laughed my butt off. The whole cast is so perfect and I loved the choreography." - Dahlya G.

"I LOVED IT!! Comedic timing is soooo perfect...the whole cast is so spot on and talented. Amazing work." - Stacee W.

"It was awesome. If you get the chance go to Bucket List Theatre and see it...I give this day a 10/10." - Bryce R.

"Marty and I went to see Silence! The Musical last night with Ray and Ahzriel, and it was everything I hoped it would be! The cast was fantastic, the staging was creative, stage dressing and props we're limited only to the absolute necessities, and it worked beautifully. Jesse Merlin as Hannibal Lecter... there couldn't have been better casting. Do not miss it! I went to bed last night humming the music for "If I Could Smell Her Cunt", and I'm not ashamed to say it." - Becky R.

 

"Great show, great night! Go see it!" - Juliet C.

 

"SILENCE! The Musical was fantastic. I've always had a complicated relationship with the source material, so it was refreshing to see it tackled with both humor and a twisted respect. Jesse Merlin's Hannibal (sneering "I know you are, but what am I?" for example) was so satisfying considering how the character has been built up over the years. Maybe I'm just in a mood but it's just plain FUN to see a character like Hannibal poked fun at like this. Everyone was excellent, but Amanda Conlon was soooooo amazing as Clarice! She had to balance so much, often serving as the straight man to some ridiculous situations, and having to sit there with a blank face while Hannibal sang about wanting to sniff her ... ahem. Anyways. I really appreciate how they conveyed the overwhelming misogynistic world Clarice finds herself in. They never let you forget it, at every turn, every man she meets. This wore me down when I read the books, but the musical managed to find the right balance. The ensemble of singing lambs was brilliant. I wasn't quite sure what to expect from this musical, and I'm delighted I went." - Orange G.

"Amanda Conlon takes us on a hilarious musical journey into the hell known as online dating. The music is familiar but the lyrics are all hers.

I laughed out loud as did the woman next to me till she cried “This is my life right now!” - Jennifer Ashe/Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative

"The story was so relatable and well-written. LOVED this show. Bucket List Theater is definitely a group that delivers!" - Sofie K.

 

"Excellent show, great writing. Extremely enjoyable and entertaining. The musical parodies are clever and compelling. All musical parody

shows should take note of this production...a wonderful treat." - Chris L.

 

"I didn’t know watching real life stories from online dating could be so fun and enjoyable! Loved the clever use of familiar songs...allowed the audience to enjoy and be surprised with the clever ways lyrics were rewritten or repurposed. The ensemble was wonderful and I’d recommend anyone go see this show if they’re looking for a good time!" - Jessica V.

 

"Superior, perceptive comedy about dating. I would like to see a sequel." - Michael D

"Online dating angst mixed up with charming innocence, joie de vivre and optimism make an endearing plea for LOVE (not LUV). The sparkling cast supports the marvelous Amanda Conlon on a 50 minute joyride." - Shaw S.

 

"SO well written. I loved how she used classic musical theater songs to tell her story. Brilliant. Everyone around me, including myself, was laughing and enjoying themselves. So, so well done. I haven’t stopped talking about this show since I saw it. Hilarious. Smart. Brilliantly written and performed. I could have watched it for hours." - Cassidy D.

"From beginning to end the show was rock solid. It was hilarious, as quick witted as it was quick paced. For anyone who has dated in the modern age, this is a must see." - Jason L.

 

"This show is a delight!...my musical theatre loving heart exploded into a thousand comedy and tragedy mask emojis. This show is completely silly and totally feels sincere and that is a fantastic combo! If there is an award for an amazing ensemble I nominate these guys. Amanda is a gem...the ensemble involvement tight, consistent, dynamic and really made this feel authentic." - Bonnie S.

"I had no idea that I would enjoy this show as much as I did! It was very funny, topical, and creative." - Nathaniel B.

 

"Lots of charisma with this cast. Super funny with strong lyrics, it’s one of my favorite musicals at the Fringe. I couldn’t stop laughing and smiling throughout. Super fun show!" - Spencer F.
