We're settling up the score for good! Here are the final voting results for The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

The not-so-innocent Rosa Bud came away with the most kills at 27. The beloved Bazzard won the Datchery vote by a landslide with 49 star turns. And our most-loved lovers were the disgusting duo Puffer and Durdles. Puffer earned the most lover votes with a whopping 55 wins over all!

We bid a fond farewell to the company of Drood who brought so much joy to our audiences over the past 9 weeks!

"The subject is gender identity and self-acceptance. This of-the-moment cultural debate is given a rousing, highly entertaining song-and-dance treatment. Especially given its deep and complex emotional subject matter, “A Complicated Woman” is amazingly bright, colorful, frisky and nostalgic." -Christopher Arnott, Hartford Courant

Here's where the murder count stands as we head into the final 12 performance of Drood:

Rosa Bud is in the lead with 23 kills. The not-so-pious Reverend Crisparkle is not-so-far behind with 17 kills. The illusive Helena has 9 kills follewed by her twin Neville with 4.

And bringing up the rear are Princess Puffer and Bazzard with 2 and Durdles with 1.

Which ending do YOU want to see???
