The plotThis musical whodunit won the Tony Award for Best Musical. Loosely based on Charles Dickens’ famously unfinished novel, "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" follows the Music Hall Royale, a loony Victorian musical troupe, as it performs its flamboyant rendition of this musical mystery.

That is for the audience to decide.
