The Mystery of Edwin Drood, the 1986 Best Musical Tony Award winner with book, music and lyrics by pop songwriter Rupert Holmes, is being revived at The Theatre at St. Peter's Church in New York.
Performances are Nov. 20-23.
The director/choreographer is Marcia Milgrom Dodge. The cast includes James Bulleri, Mackenzie Clipp, Nancy D'Addario, Sandra Denise, Matthew Kovich, Colin E. Liander, Doug Marcks, Amanda Serkasevich, Ari Solomon, Josh Walden and Noah Weisberg.
The show is based on an unfinished mystery by Charles Dickens and is structured as a show within a show -- with the Dickens tale being performed by an English music hall troupe.
