ENDURING MYSTERY: The final project of Charles Dickens, 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood' gets the stage treatment.

When Charles Dickens gave up the ghost in 1870, he left more than a literary legacy in his wake. He also left an unfinished novel. The Mystery of Edwin Drood tells the story of a suspicious death and the ensuing investigation. But there’s a hitch: Dickens died before he had a chance to write the ending. Several writers have since wrapped up Drood’s mystery. This weekend, 3Below stages one of the most interesting continuations; The Mystery of Edwin Drood by Rupert Holmes is a musical comedy in which the audience gets to choose Drood’s killer. It was the first Broadway musical to have multiple endings.
