Everyone’s a suspect in The Mystery of Edwin Drood and you get to decide whodunit! The hilarious Tony Award-winning play-within-a-play showcases modern actors portraying Victorian thespians of the Music Hall Royale theater troupe who are presenting a flamboyant rendition of Charles Dickens’ unfinished mystery novel. One of the work’s most talked-about features is that the audience will get to vote on the outcome of the play using social media and mobile devices.

This performance is mobile-device friendly.
