The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Book, Music & Lyrics by Rupert Holmes
Directed & choreographed by Gary Slavin, Music Directed by Matthew Stephens.
Based on Charles Dickens’ final unfinished novel, this hilarious whodunit invites the audience to solve its mystery by choosing the identity of the murderer. The tale is presented as a show-within-a-show, as the Music Hall Royale – a delightfully loony Victorian theatre company – presents Dickens’ brooding mystery. Musical numbers include “Perfect Strangers,” “Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead,” “Off To The Races” and “Moonfall.” Fun and interactive – the audience will vote on important parts of the ending, so each performance is completely different from the others!
