Title: Grand Hotel
Musical by: Robert Wright
Location: American Musical Theatre of San Jose, California

Duration: 2 hours, 2 minutes
Details: A faded ballerina, a Baron who moonlights as a burglar, a dying bookkeeper, 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. Grand Hotel, The Musical features music and lyrics by Robert Wright and George Forrest, a book by Luther Davis, and additional music and lyrics by Maury Yeston. When the show opened on Broadway in 1989 it was a hit—winning five Tony awards and running for 1,017 performances.
