    What the popular press said...

    "Delectable trifle of a show."
    Charles Isherwood for NY Times

    "A killer production for the Roundabout Theatre Company that’s joyously performed."
    Joe Dziemianowicz for New York Daily News

    "For a show doing triple duty as musical, choose-your-own-ending mystery and time-travel device, “Drood” is jolly good fun."
    Elisabeth Vincentelli for New York Post

    "The audience I saw 'Drood' with adored it, and I suspect most will, so hooray for Roundabout. Alas, the show still makes my teeth hurt."
    Erik Haagensen for Back Stage

    "Directed with spirit and warmth by Scott Ellis, 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood' is enormous ... fun."
    Robert Feldberg for The Record

    "It's frivolous and excessive, but if you're in the right mood, it's loads of fun."
    Roma Torre for NY1

    "A wonderfully daffy musical whodunit."
    Michael Sommers for Newsroom Jersey

    "Regardless of the accomplished cast and sparkling design and direction in Roundabout’s Broadway revival, nothing great can come of mediocre material."
    David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter

    "Diverting and amiable entertainment."
    Steven Suskinn for Variety
