The Grand Hotel is bustling with eccentric and sometimes dubious guests: amongst them a fading prima ballerina being forced to dance again; a fatally ill Jewish bookkeeper who wants to spend his final days living in luxury; a young, handsome, but destitute Baron; a cynical doctor suffering from World War I wounds; an honest businessman going bad as he faces financial ruin and a typist dreaming of Hollywood stardom.
Behold these vibrant dramas as they spring to life in a whirlwind of music and dance. As the wealthy, poor, innocent, bitter, kind and cruel, all reveal their lifelong desires and passions, you'll bask in the shimmering elegance that is…GRAND HOTEL!
Book by Luther Davis, music and lyrics by Robert Wright and George Forrest. Based on Vicki Baum's "Grand Hotel". By arrangement with Turner Broadcasting Co. owner of the motion picture "Grand Hotel". Additional music and lyrics by Maury Yeston.
