It is 1928. 1920s extravagance and opulence sweep across the stage of Berlin's Grand Hotel. The world is between wars, the stock market is booming, Berlin is the center of high life and optimism rules the day. However, underneath it all, much is happening with the Grand Hotel's illustrious clients. Inspired by Vicki Baum's period novel, issues of life and death, financial ruin, love and murder converge as people come and go through the lobby of the Grand Hotel. From esteemed book writer, Luther Davis and distinguished composer-lyricist team of Robert Wright and George Forrest, this seamless musical won multiple Tony and Drama Desk Awards in 1990 and ran for over 1000 performances on Broadway.

“…Kudo’s to Front Porch Theatricals for another outstanding production and for sharing your vision of Grand Hotel with Pittsburgh. Leon would be proud.”

“For sheer uplifting entertainment and enjoyment done well, Front Porch Theatricals’s Grand Hotel is an escape from the mundane into a fantasy world peopled by an array of vibrant characters…”

“All of the cast are standouts in their roles, something a bit surprising in a company so large. Not to be overlooked is their musical talent. These are seasoned performers who sing with exceptional talent, supported by a fine orchestra under the direction of Douglas Levine.”

“…this show is a lost gem, one of those staged-to-the-tiniest-detail mega-musicals that has been lost to history.”
