According to press notes, audience will "take a trip back in time to a Victorian music hall where a rowdy ensemble of actors mounts a staging of Charles Dickensí unfinished novel. Everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood - and itís up to you to choose the killer, and each performance ends differently, depending on what the audience decides."
Director Wilford Leach's rollicking original production of "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" earned Broadway's 'Triple Crown' (Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score Tony Awards) for writer/composer Rupert Holmes in 1986. The 2012 revival is directed by five-time Tony-nominee Scott Ellis.
The cast is headed by Drama Desk nominee Stephanie J. Block, Will Chase from TV's "Smash," Tony-nominee Gregg Edelman, and Tony-winners Jim Norton and Chita Rivera.
