Why See Mystery of Edwin Drood?

Take a trip back in time to a Victorian music hall where a rowdy ensemble of actors mounts a staging of Charles Dickens' unfinished novel.

Everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood, and it's up to you to choose the killer! Each performance ends differently, depending on what the audience decides. Starring Tony Award winner Chita Rivera.

Who killed Edwin Drood?  Practically everyone is a suspect in this rousing Tony Award-winning musical mystery. And since author Charles Dickens left the story unfinished, it's up to the audience to decide.
