Obsidian Theater and SRO Present THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD

Obsidian Theater in association with Standing Room Only Productions is excited to bring the musical comedy, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, to Houston audiences. This hilarious whodunit will run September 28-October 14 at Obsidian Theater. With book, music and lyrics by Rupert Holmes, this show within a show is based on the final unfinished novel of the same name by Charles Dickens, who left his story unfinished when he passed away in 1870. Due to the novel being incomplete, the identity of the murderer, or the question of Drood's ultimate fate, was never revealed.

Winner of 5 Tony Awards, including best direction, best musical, best score and best actor in a musical, Drood (or The Mystery of Edwin Drood) is a musical comedy "whodunit" that allows the audience to determine the ending. Drood was the first Broadway musical with multiple endings (determined by audience vote). Obsidian Theater patrons will get the unique opportunity to be directly involved with the show and choose the outcome at each individual performance. Was it the odious John Jasper? The ruler of London's opium den, Princess Puffer? The innocent ingenue Rosa Budd? For the first time in the heart of the Houston Heights the audience has the power to decide the ending.

Performances are September 28, 29, 30 and October 2, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14 at 8:00pm and October 8 at 3:00pm. All performances are at Obsidian Theater - 3522 White Oak Drive, Houston, TX, for information or tickets go to or call 832-889-7837.
