Come spend an evening at the Grand Hotel Berlin. It’s 1928, and the optimism between World Wars is in full swing.
Based on the novel by Vicki Baum and subsequent MGM feature film, the seamless musical captures the high life and optimism of Berlin in 1928 through a powerful and sweeping score. The world's most expensive hotel brings together a collection of rich characters, both wealthy and poor, where "one life ends while another begins", and "one heart breaks while another beats faster".
