Synopsis: 

You choose the murderer in The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the whodunit smash based on the unfinished novel by Charles Dickens and adapted by Tony Award®-winning writer/composer Rupert Holmes (Curtains). Scott Ellis (She Loves Me) directs this rollicking musical in its first-ever return to Broadway since winning the Tony "Triple Crown" (Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score)!

Who killed Edwin Drood? It's a question that has stumped audiences for years--now it's your turn to answer one of Broadway's most baffling mysteries.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!

    Raising the Dickens in All of Us

    Charles Isherwood

    November 13, 2012: Whodunit? That immemorial question still drives readers to the bookshelves or, these days, to any number of glow-in-the-dark devices. And with the explosion of social media inspiring a taste for talking back, the time seems especially ripe for the Roundabout Theater Company’s boisterous revival of “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” the 1985 Broadway musical that allows audiences to savor the satisfactions of impersonating Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot, pointing an accusatory finger at a cowering culprit.

    Broadway revival of silly ‘The Mystery of Edwin Drood’ gets huge boost from veterans

    Mark Kennedy

    November 13, 2012: Hopefully, everyone managed to vote last week. It's one of our civic duties. But did you know there's some voting that needs to happen on Broadway, too? That might be called your theatrical duty.

    The Mystery of Edwin Drood

    David Rooney

    November 13, 2012: One of the refrains sung by the Victorian music hall performers in The Mystery of Edwin Drood is, “No good can come from bad.” The case isn’t quite so black and white in this 1985 “musicale with dramatic interludes” by Rupert Holmes, teased out of the unfinished Charles Dickens novel. But regardless of the accomplished cast and sparkling design and direction in Roundabout’s Broadway revival, nothing great can come of mediocre material.

    The Mystery of Edwin Drood

    Matt Windman

    November 13, 2012: "The Mystery of Edwin Drood," inspired by an unfinished Charles Dickens novel, is one of the most inventive, inspired and rousing musicals ever devised. And it is a pleasure to report that the Roundabout Theatre Company's revival is thoroughly well-cast and extremely enjoyable.

    The Mystery of Edwin Drood

    Linda Winer

    November 13, 2012: Long before we all could vote people off the island for our own entertainment, there was "The Mystery of Edwin Drood." Rupert Holmes wrote the book and the score for the 1985 show, which was based on the 1870 novel that Charles Dickens never finished.
