The Roundabout Theatre Company said Thursday previews of the mystery musical comedy are to begin Oct. 19, with an official opening set for Nov. 29 at Studio 54.
Directed by Scott Ellis, "The Mystery of Edwin Drood" will have choreography by Warren Carlyle and music direction by Paul Gemignani.
"Who killed Edwin Drood? It's a question that has stumped audiences for years -- now it's your turn to answer one of Broadway's most baffling mysteries," a synopsis said. "Take a trip back in time to a Victorian music hall where a rowdy ensemble of actors mounts a staging of Charles Dickens' unfinished novel. Everyone on stage is a suspect in the murder of young Edwin Drood -- and it's up to you to choose the killer! Is it John Jasper, Edwin's protective but slightly maniacal uncle? Rosa Bud, his reluctant betrothed? The debauched Princess Puffer? Each performance ends differently, depending on what the audience decides."
