Who killed Edwin Drood? 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 -- and it’s up to you to choose the killer! Is it John Jasper, Edwin’s protective but slightly maniacal uncle? Rosa Bud, his reluctant betrothed? The debauched Princess Puffer? Each performance ends differently, depending on what the audience decides!

For The Record:

“...Edwin Drood” originally opened on B’way at the Imperial on Dec 2, 1985 under the auspices of Joseph Papp/NYSF. Wilford Leach directed and Graciela Daniele choreographed a cast headed by Betty Buckley (Drood) and Cleo Laine (Princess Puffer).
