The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. 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?

 

Rupert Holmes imagines the story as a British Music Hall production full of fun and music, with the audience choosing the ending.  Drood won 5 Tonys in 1985, including best musical.

 

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.

 

This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover. All actors play multiple parts, and genders of the characters may change by tradition of the genre.
