“Off to the Races” – The Mystery of Edwin Drood

Music and Lyrics: Rupert Holmes

Television viewers went off to the races on this day in 1949 when the first televised coverage of the Kentucky Derby took place.  As this high-spirited song gallops on, the audience is reminded to follow the clues in this musical whodunit based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished murder mystery.  This is important because the outcome of the show depends on the audience members, who vote to determine the killer/ending.
