|The Cast of The Mystery of Edwin Drood
Guggenheim Entertainment is now staging at its 3 Below Theatres and Lounge an rip-roaring, rambunctious, and riotous The Mystery of Edwin Drood — Rupert Holmes’ 1985 musical that garnered five Tony Awards out of eleven nominations, including Best Musical. As soon as the theatre’s two aisles fill with a variety of jovial, oddball characters dressed in late-nineteenth century wear – stopping along the way to greet audience members as if old friends – it is clear that this is not going to be a typical musical outing. We soon realize that we are watching something that has aspects of a rowdy, English music hall in the 1890s, of a contemporary Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, and of the yet-to-appear Vaudeville shows of the U.S.A.
