Winner of 5 Tony Awards and 8 Drama Desk awards, Drood - The Mystery of Edwin Drood kicks off when the Music Hall Royale (a hilariously loony Victorian musical troupe) puts on its flamboyant rendition of an unfinished Dickens mystery.
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. 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, whodunit?
