Not a lot of musicals begin without knowing how they’re going to end.
“The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” the unfinished Charles Dickens story that Rockland native Rupert Holmes turned into a Tony-winning musical, is one of those.
“Drood” takes to the stage at Clarkstown High School South this weekend.
It’s two stories in one, with characters playing actors playing roles.
Don’t worry, it’s not hard to follow.
And the fun continues right till the end, with the audience voting for whodunnit.
“The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” at Clarkstown High School South, 8 p.m., April 4 and 5; 2 p.m., April 6.
Here’s the Running Lines video I shot at South. Enjoy!
