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 show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name. In the 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? Unfortunately, Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to vote on the identity of the killer! They also get to choose which character is behind the false beard of detective Dick Datchery, and finally, which two characters are united in love at the end of the play. The play is supposedly being performed in 1892 by the Music Hall Royale, a traveling Victorian theatre troupe full of just as many colorful characters as the roles they play!
