What is a good audition song for the Musical "The mystery of Edwin Drood"?

as the character of Edwin Drood. I'm more of a soprano, but with no vocal coaching, so I'm rough. And, my theatre teacher told me the character of Edwin Drood is a mezzo soprano, so what is a good song I can audition with that is mezzo soprano? My theatre teacher also said It should be something kind of slow. I was going to sing Moonfall, but I want them to see me as Edwin, not Rosa. Thankyou!! Auditions are Tuesday D:

    I haven't seen Drood since it was on Broadway in the 70s or 80s, but the main character was played by Betty Buckley, who also played Grisabella in Cats. If you can't or aren't supposed to do a song from the show, you might consider Memory from Cats, or As Long As He Needs Me from Oliver, or Send in the Clowns from A Little Night Music. Those would be the songs I'd sing, but you may not even recognize the shows. Look for a more sophisticated character, not something you hear on the top 40 radio station.
