The production, directed by Matthew Gould with musical direction by James Cleeve and orchestrations by Tony Osborne, stars Wendi Peters (best known for her role as Cilla Battersby-Brown in TV's "Coronation Street"). The company also includes Natalie Day, Victoria Farley, Daniel Robinson, Loula Geater, David Francis, Denis Delahunt, Richard Stirling, Chris Coleman, Oliver Mawdsley, Paul Hutton, Tom Pepper and Ben Goffe. Based on Charles Dickens' final unfinished novel, the show is a play within a play set in the world of music hall and pantomime that follows the exploits of characters from the Theatre Royale Music Hall Company as they set about completing the unfinished story of Edwin Drood – with a little sing-along help from the audience along the way, who also help to decide who the killer is each night.
The Mystery of Edwin Drood is produced by Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment. The show is also scheduled for an entirely separate revival by Roundabout Theatre Company at its Studio 54 base in the fall.
