The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Director: Joe Phillips
Assistant Director: Brendan Freiler
Musical Director: Frank Leavitt
Choreographer: Zachary Pearson

Show Number: 296


Book, Music, and Lyrics by Rupert Holmes. This wildly warm-hearted theatrical experience kicks off when the Music Hall Royale “puts on” its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery in The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The story itself deals with John Jasper, a Jekyll-and-Hyde choirmaster who is quite madly in love with his music student, the fair Miss Rosa Bud. Now, Miss Bud is, in turn, engaged to Jasper’s nephew, young Edwin Drood. Our title character disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve-but has Edwin Drood been murdered? And if so, then whodunnit?
