The Mystery of Edwin Drood will make 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’s 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!
