Book, music and lyrics by RUPERT HOLMES
Suggested by the unfinished novel of the same name by CHARLES DICKENS
This hilarious musical whodunit was a smash hit on Broadway where it received rave reviews. Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ famous unfinished novel, it takes audience participation to new heights by letting them directly affect the play’s outcome by voting for whomever they think murdered the unfortunate young Edwin Drood. Presented as a ‘first-night performance by The Music Hall Royale’, a troupe of decidedly hammy Victorian actors, this affectionate recreation of a bygone theatrical age is certain to prove an enormous hit with everyone. The witty and tuneful score contains such numbers as “There You Are”, “Moonfall”, Perfect Strangers” and “Off To The Races.
Brush up on your detective skills because each show’s audience will vote at their performance to determine the ending of Charles Dickens’s final, unfinished novel.
