Grand Hotel - The Musical

Grand Hotel - The Musical

New York City Center's Encores! series continues its 25th Anniversary season with Grand Hotel - The Musical. Performances take place on the Mainstage from March 21 to 25, 2018.

Only a tiny handful of Broadway shows have gone through the birth pangs that accompanied the creation of Grand Hotel - The Musical, and survived to tell the tale. First produced in 1958 under the title At the Grand, it played an ignominious out-of-town tryout and was scrapped in California. In the late ’80s the visionary director and choreographer Tommy Tune removed it from the scrap pile and re-tooled it for Broadway. Tune called in the cavalry. Maury Yeston wrote some additional songs and Peter Stone helped reorganize the book.

The show was a hit—a kind of fever dream of life at the end of the Weimer Era at Berlin’s most glamorous crossroads.

This show has now closed. See our list of theatre tickets for shows currently on sale.

About Grand Hotel - The Musical:

A faded ballerina, a cat burglar posing as a Count, a businessman facing certain ruin, and a young secretary all-too-eager to become an American film star are all trapped by history, as the world careens into a great depression, and the revolving door keeps turning.

Book by Luther Davis, Music & Lyrics by Robert Wright and George Forrest, Additional Music & Lyrics by Maury Yeston, based on Vicki Baum’s Grand Hotel

Our Grand Hotel - The Musical Review

With this sumptuous, haunted revival of Grand Hotel - The Musical, Encores! at New York City Center is celebrating its 25th season of producing first-class concert versions of classic Broadway musicals. Tommy Tune’s masterful original production of Grand Hotel closed just about 25 years ago, so its inclusion in this season’s celebration is as apt as it is welcome.
