Europe in crisis, the stock market on the verge of collapse, foreigners mistrusted, paranoia rife.

Amid the fizz, frenzy and frolics, some guests just want to be alone.

Check-in to the Grand Hotel Berlin - let’s party like it’s 1928.

First produced on Broadway in 1989 the musical is based on the 1929 novel ‘Menschen im Hotel’ by Vicki Baum, whose works were banned in the Third Reich. Her novel also inspired a 1932 film of the same name starring Greta Garbo, John Barrymore and Joan Crawford.

By arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.
