The Mystery of Edwin Drood
This hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name.
In small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote.
After its inception as part of the New York Shakespeare Festival, headed by Joseph Papp of the Public Theatre, Drood moved to Broadway and played for a total of 608 performances at the Imperial Theatre starring Betty Buckley, Cleo Laine and George Rose.
