Grand Hotel1928. Berlin. At Grand Hotel the guests and staff are suffering from an excess of hope and optimism as the stock market booms. The city’s decadent high life is in full swing. The Donmar’s new production brings to life this sparkling Tony Award-winning musical.

Luther Davis chanced upon a copy of Vicki Baum’s novel in a second hand bookshop and was inspired to write a musical about it. Following the success of their collaboration on Kismet, which opened in 1953, Davis asked Robert Wright and George Forrest to create the score for his book. The musical opened in 1989 and was produced at the West End’s Dominion Theatre in 1992.
