THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD Book, Music & Lyrics by Rupert Holmes, 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 small town of Cloisterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? 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.
