Winner of the 1986 Tony Award for Best Musical. Based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished final novel, The Mystery of Edwin Drood tells the story of young Edwin, an Englishman whose sudden disappearance throws the townspeople of Cloisterham into a panic. Suspicions arise about who is responsible for Drood’s vanishing – or is it murder? – with fingers pointing every which way. As the investigation pushes forward, everyone who came into contact with Drood joins the lineup of the suspects. Since Dickens so inconveniently laid down his pen and died before revealing the solution to the novel’s central mysteries, at each performance the audience makes their own decisions on the outcome of the plot, which are then performed by the cast - creating a unique show experience nightly!
