The Mystery of Edwin Drood

 
"An exuberant romp" —Steven Suskin, Variety
 
"A hit! Sheer fun!" —Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal
 
"Jolly good fun!" —Adam Feldman, Time Out New York 
 
At the hit Broadway musical The Mystery of Edwin Drood, you finish the story Charles Dickens didn’t! It’s the only show in town that ends differently every night, depending on what the audience decides. Stephanie J. Block (Anything Goes), Will Chase (“Smash”), Gregg Edelman (Wonderful Town), Jim Norton (The Seafarer), and Chita Rivera (Nine) star in this rollicking winner of the Tony® “Triple Crown” (Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score). 

Take a trip back in time to a Victorian music hall where a rowdy ensemble of actors mounts a staging of Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel. Everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood. Is it John Jasper, Edwin’s protective but slightly maniacal uncle? Rosa Bud, his reluctant betrothed? The debauched Princess Puffer? The ending of each performance is up to you!

Don’t miss the exciting play-within-a-musical that The New York Times has called “ingenious.” Come help solve The Mystery of Edwin Drood!
 
Major support for The Mystery of Edwin Drood provided by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation.
 
The Mystery of Edwin Drood benefits from Roundabout’s Musical Theatre Fund, with gifts from Marty and Perry Granoff, HRH Foundation, Peter and Leni May, and Tom and Diane Tuft.
