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 musical captures the high life and optimism of Berlin in 1928. The hotel brings together vibrant characters, both wealthy and poor, where "one life ends while another begins," and "one heart breaks while another beats faster."
