| The Anselmian Abbey Players Present: The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Dana Center - (Koonz Theatre)
Everyone’s a suspect in The Mystery of Edwin Drood and this wildly
warm-hearted musical requires the audience to finish the story that
Charles Dickens didn’t! In this winner of 4 Tony Awards, including Best
Musical, we meet a rollicking band of Victorian Music Hall entertainers
who spin the tale of John Jasper, a Jekyll-and-Hyde choirmaster who is
quite madly in love with his music student, the fair Miss Rosa Bud. Miss
Bud, in turn, is engaged to Jasper’s nephew, young Edwin Drood.
disappears mysteriously one stormy Christmas Eve. Has he been murdered?
And if so, then whodunit? It is here, however, that Mr. Dickens laid
down his pen for good, and the actors must turn to the audience to
determine the most unusual and hilarious finale.
The Mystery of Edwin
Drood is that rare show that ends differently every night, depending on
the audience vote! Musical numbers include The Wages of Sin, Perfect
Strangers, Both Sides of the Coin, Don’t Quit While You’re Ahead and
