27 Oct 2012
Dastardly deeds! Shady Characters! Personal Attacks! Secrets! Lies! Mayhem! An unpredictable ending determined by democratic vote! The U.S. presidential election and The Mystery of Edwin Drood have quite a lot in common. Just as Americans are breathing a sigh of relief that the debates are over, the characters of Drood are stepping into the political arena with their own campaigns.
Americans only get to vote for the U.S. presidency once every four years, but Broadway audiences get to vote nightly on who murders Edwin Drood. With the presidential election just 10 days away, and 10 featured Drood characters to go, Playbill.com has exclusive "election" campaigns from the cast, who will say anything to get your vote.
Playbill.com will reveal one potential murderer's campaign each day until its readers get to go to the polls (or Drood) and cast their own votes Nov. 6!
Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
