The Mystery of Edwin Drood Critics' Reviews

"Anna Louizos's fantastically elaborate sets are perfect... and William Ivey Long's costumes are as luscious-looking as you could possibly desire."

Review by Terry Teachout from The Wall Street Journal

"...there's a charmingly meta quality to Holmes' approach to the material: He imagines the story as a performance of an old-fashioned English music-hall troupe, led by a spirited master of ceremonies played to spry perfection by Jim Norton."

Review by Thom Geier from Entertainment Weekly

"...for a show doing triple duty as musical, choose-your-own-ending mystery and time-travel device, 'Drood' is jolly good fun."

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from The New York Post

"Perhaps the best part is watching the first-rate cast have so much fun—Stephanie J. Block shows real comedic power, Jim Norton is having a ball, Chita Rivera is giggly, Gregg Edelman is just silly and Will Chase is over-acting perfectly."

Review by Mark Kennedy from Associated Press

"...this handsome production offers a generous feast for the eyes, trimmed in holiday cheer for an added spritz of currency."

Review by Charles Isherwood from The New York Times
