In "The Mystery Of Edwin Drood" the audience members attending the performances will decide which characters will fall in love, how the plot's mystery ends, and more! This musical is based on the unfinished Charles Dickens novel The Mystery of Edwin Drood. It is written by Rupert Holmes, and was the first Broadway musical with multiple endings (determined by audience vote). Holmes received Tony Awards for Best Book and Best Original Score. The musical won five Tony Awards out of eleven nominations, including Best Musical.
