It is easy to be afraid of something when you don’t know where it is, because if it’s not there it could be anywhere. But fear not! There’s no need to be afraid of Landless Theatre Company! They’re right here— well— here being there and there being in the black-box-found-space of Best Medicine Rep inside the Lakeforest Mall in Gaithersburg. And they’re putting on a spooktacular children’s affair just in time for Halloween!
Landless Theatre Company is off to the races! Off to the races! I said, they’re OFF TO THE RACES with their workshop production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood: Symphonic Metal Version. Directed by Melissa Baughman, with Musical Direction by Andrew Lloyd Baughman and Zachary Pinkham, this symphonic metal version of Rupert Holmes’ musical (based on the unfinished play by Charles Dickens) features new arrangements and orchestrations by The Fleet Street Collective of Landless Theatre Company.

As he breaks them down one-by-one, the students start to question their willingness to bend for their craft. Do they have what it takes?
