BWW Photo Exclusive: Ye Old MZ Uncovers Scandal at THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD's Music Hall Royale!


"Ye Olde MZ" found plenty of scandal at the Music Hall Royale. The actors' behavior, complete with scandals, meltdowns, and showmances practically cried out for a league of light chemists (some took to calling them "paparazzi"). Ye Olde MZ captured a series of these shocking acts on Mr. Eastman's then-recent invention giving you a behind-the-scenes look at The Mystery of Edwin Drood that must be seen (by only the most intrepid of souls) to be believed.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is playing a limited engagement at Studio 54 (254 West 54th Street) through March 10th, 2013. The original end date was February 10th, 2013.

Directed by Scott Ellis, The Mystery of Edwin Drood features choreography by Warren Carlyle and music direction by Paul Gemignani. The design team includes Anna Louizos (sets), William Ivey Long (costumes), Brian Nason (lighting), Tony Meola (sound) and Paul Huntley (hair & wigs).

The Mystery Of Edwin Drood stars Stephanie J. Block (Edwin Drood), Will Chase (John Jasper), Gregg Edelman (Reverend Mr. Crisparkle), Jim Norton (Chairman) and Chita Rivera (Princess Puffer) with Andy Karl (Neville Landless), Jessie Mueller (Helena Landless), Betsy Wolfe (Rosa Bud), Nicholas Barasch (Deputy), Peter Benson (Bazzard), Robert Creighton (Durdles), Alison Cimmet, Nick Corley, Janine DiVita, Jenifer Foote, Justin Greer, Shannon Lewis, Spencer Plachy, Kiira Schmidt, Eric Sciotto, Jim Walton.

THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD makes its first-ever return to Broadway since winning the Tony "Triple Crown" (Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score)! 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 youto 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!
