The Mystery of Edwin Drood, is an unexpectedly delightful and high-quality production, tucked into a small theater in the heart of downtown San José. The show presents itself as a bawdy musical review of the late-1800s, presenting the story of Edwin Drood, his beautiful bride-to-be, his shady uncle and a host of other Dickensian stereotypes you may recognize. Most interestingly, however, the show ends differently every night. Halfway through act two, the audience gets to weigh in on the outcome of the murder mystery, getting the opportunity to vote not only on the murderer, but also the identity of a mysterious detective and the lovers at the end of the show.
