Obsidian Theater in association with Standing Room Only Productions is excited to bringthe musical comedy, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, to Houston audiences. This hilariouswhodunit will run September 21-October 14 at Obsidian Theater. With book, music andlyrics by Rupert Holmes, this show within a show is based on the final unfinished novelof the same name by Charles Dickens, who left his story unfinished when he passed awayin 1870. Due to the novel being incomplete, the identity of the murderer, or the questionof Drood’s ultimate fate, was never revealed.
Winner of 5 Tony Awards, including best direction, best musical, best score and best actor in a musical,Drood (or The Mystery of Edwin Drood) is a musical comedy “whodunit” that allows theaudience to determine the ending. Drood was the first Broadway musical with multipleendings (determined by audience vote). Obsidian Theater patrons will get the uniqueopportunity to be directly involved with the show and choose the outcome at eachindividual performance. Was it the odious John Jasper? The ruler of London’s opiumden, Princess Puffer? The innocent ingenue Rosa Budd? For the first time in the heart ofthe Houston Heights the audience has the power to decide the ending.
