Green Valley Theatre Company Presents
Grand Hotel, The Musical
Grand Hotel is a musical with a book by Luther Davis and music and lyrics by Robert Wright and George Forrest, with additional music and lyrics by Maury Yeston. The show is based on the 1929 Vicki Baum novel and play, Menschen im Hotel (People in a Hotel), and the subsequent 1932 MGM feature film. The musical focuses on events taking place over the course of a weekend in an elegant hotel in 1928 Berlin and the intersecting stories of the eccentric guests of the hotel, including a fading prima ballerina; a fatally ill Jewish bookkeeper, who wants to spend his final days living in luxury; a young, handsome, but destitute Baron; a cynical doctor; an honest businessman gone bad, and a typist dreaming of Hollywood success.
The show’s 1989 Broadway production garnered 12 Tony Award nominations, winning five, including best direction and choreography for Tommy Tune.
The design team for Grand Hotel includes John Ewing (director) Christopher Cook (producer and set director), Jacob Montoya (choreographer), Adriel Cruz (musical director), Meg Masterson (costumes) Mika McKenzie-Bahr (lighting), and Wade McKenzie-Bahr (sound).
Performances of Grand Hotel begin on Friday, May 5 at 8 p.m. and continue through Sunday, May 28, 2017. Show times will be Fridays, and Saturdays at 8 p.m., and Sundays at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $18 and are available online at greenvalleytheatre.com/tickets, or in-person at the door.
