Featuring book, music, and lyrics by Rupert Holmes, the musical murder mystery is based on an unfinished novel by Charles Dickens. In this show, everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood--and it's up to the audience to choose the killer. Scott Ellis will direct the production, with choreography by Warren Carlyle and musical direction by Paul Gemignani.

Block (Edwin Drood), Will Chase (John Jasper), Gregg Edelman (Reverend Mr. Crisparkle), Jim Norton (Chairman) and Chita Rivera (Princess Puffer) with Andy Karl (Neville Landless), Jessie Mueller (Helena Landless), Betsy Wolfe (Rosa Bud), Nicholas Barasch (Deputy), Peter Benson (Bazzard), Robert Creighton (Durdles), Alison Cimmet, Nick Corley, Janine DiVita, Jenifer Foote, Justin Greer, Shannon Lewis, Spencer Plachy, Kiira Schmidt, Eric Sciotto, Jim Walton, and Cody Williams.
