The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. 
The show is based on Charles Dickens' unfinished novel of the same name and tells the story of young Edwin Drood, an Englishman whose sudden disappearance throws the fictional townspeople of Cloisterham into a panic. Suspicions arise about who is responsible for Drood's vanishing, with fingers pointing every which way, including the dashing but villainous John Jasper, Drood's fiancée Rosa Bud, opium den proprietor Princess Puffer, and mysterious siblings Helena and Neville Landless. As the investigation pushes forward, everyone who came into contact with Drood joins the lineup of the suspects.
