Marble Stage Theater presents the "Solve-it-Yourself" musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Rupert Holmes. The winner of the 1986 Tony for Best Musical, Drood follows the antics of a band of rag-tag music hall performers as they stage Charles Dickens' final story. Unfortunately, Dickens died before completing his book, so the performers ask the audience to vote about how the story should be concluded. There are over 250 possible combinations of events to complete the show!
So, who might've killed dear Edwin? Jasper, the bitter music master? The exotic, hot-tempered Neville, or perhaps his ruthless sister, Helena? Could sweet Rosa Bud have a dark side? Or maybe the Reverend Crisparkle is not as saintly as he seems. Opium-peddling Princess Puffer might know more than she's letting on...
But wait...are we sure Edwin is really dead?
Marble Stage Theater is a community theater, formerly housed at Crestwood Court ArtSpace. Marble Stage recently won an award for "Best Productions in the Midwest Region' by the American Asociation of Community Theater.
