The Mystery of Drood” is not really a mystery...not a traditional musical. Call it an entertainment, and a clever game, and prepare to have fun. ....Such interactive theater and meta fiddling was more a novelty when Drood first hit Broadway, before such mischievous non-mysteries like “Twin Peaks” and long before such “immersive” experiences that put theatergoers in control like “Sleep No More.” The effect of all this playing around, whether intentional or not, is to keep the audience at a remove from Dickens’ story. This is not a show for serious consumers of mysteries, even though the man who created it – he wrote the book, music, lyrics and orchestrations – changed his name from David Goldstein to Rupert Holmes in honor of Sherlock.
