The 1985-86 season was, by most accounts, lackluster. Musical-wise, there were no Cats sized hits. At that point, anything less than Cats was popularly thought of as somehow lacking. Funny that in the next two seasons, Broadway would find two of its biggest hits ever. But that year did have two shows that were artistically unique and both, to a certain degree, have stood up pretty well over time. Those shows were Song and Dance (featuring Bernadette Peters in her first Tony-winning role) and the show I'm discussing today, The Mystery of Edwin Drood.
