NEW YORK (AP) - Chita Rivera will get some help from Stephanie J. Block, Jim Norton and Will Chase when “The Mystery of Edwin Drood” begins flummoxing audiences this fall.

The Roundabout Theatre Company revealed Thursday the full cast for the revival of Rupert Holmes’ musical comedy that begins Oct. 19 at its Studio 54 theater under the direction of Scott Ellis.

The Tony-winning play is loosely based on the book of the same name that Charles Dickens was working on when he died in 1870. The audience decides who the murderer is.

Norton won a Tony in “The Seafarer” and Chase is known for his role as Michael Swift in NBC’s “Smash. Block has just ended her run in “Anything Goes.” Jessie Mueller, from “On a Clear Day You Can See Forever,” and Gregg Edelman, of “Into the Woods,” also join the cast.
