The release of the Broadway cast recording for the current Roundabout Theatre Company revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood will be celebrated at a special event being held at Barnes & Noble in New York City. Part of the “Live at Barnes and Noble” series, the release will take place at the Upper East Side location of B&N, situated at 150 E. 86th Street (at Lexington Avenue).
Scheduled for March 8 at 4:30pm, the Edwin Drood event will be hosted by the musical’s very own composer and lyricist, Rupert Holmes. The entire cast of the show will appear, with performances by Jessie Mueller, Stephanie J. Block, and Betsy Wolfe. Songs such as “The Writing on the Wall,” “Perfect Strangers,” and “Murderer’s Confession” are planned to be included in the performance.
The special album release event will conclude with a signing portion, where Rupert Holmes and the cast of The Mystery of Edwin Drood will autograph copies of the cast recording for fans.
