Based on the 1929 Vicki Baum novel and play, Menschen im Hotel (People in a Hotel), and the subsequent 1932 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; and a typist dreaming of Hollywood success.

Grand Hotel: The Musical is directed by Marya Spring Cordes (Dead Man’s Cellphone, Picnic). The set is designed by Pam Knauert Lavarnway (Funny Girl, Hairspray, August: Osage County), lighting by Matthew P. Benjamin (Hairspray), costumes by D. Bartlett Blair (Funny Girl, 42nd Street), properties by John Lavarnway, and sound by James Dunlap.

On the stage, this production features Justin King (Doctor Otternschlag), Taryn Lemmons (Elizaveta Grushinskaya), Mathys Herbert (Otto Kringelein), Riley Able (Baron Felix Von Gaigern), Andrew Quiett (Hermann Preysing), Sierra Stacy (Flaemmchen), Beth Ann Wipprecht (Raffaela), Casey Jordan (Sandor), Ian Benjamin (Witt), Mark Beyer (Zinnowitz), Kevin Ferguson (Jimmy #1), Jordan Adams (Jimmy #2), Jon Hacker (Erik), Cooper Taggard (Rohna), Tommy Dimassimo (The Chauffeur), Cassi Mikat (Madame Peepee), Delee Cooper (The Countess), Drew Bowen (The Gigolo) and an ensemble rounded out by Jacob Huddilston, Alex Caldwell, Alyson Stoner, Renika Williams, Lizzy Miller, Kaitlyn Sage, Bradley Farmer, Amy Wheeler, Kelsey Andrae, Logan Torbet, Tyler Edwards and Hannah Aicholtz.
