The original story by Charles Dickens was left unfinished until it was adapted for the stage by Rupert Holmes with a little help from the Music Hall Royale, a Victorian musical troupe. The story is about a love triangle revolving around John Jasper, a choirmaster who is in love with his music student, Miss Rosa Bud, who also happens to be engaged to Jasper's nephew, the young Edwin Drood. When Drood disappears on Christmas under suspicious circumstances, it's the audience that takes center stage. Each night, hilarity ensues as those watching the play vote on the solution to the dilemma.
