Check In This Summer At The Grand Hotel!
The team that brought you last year’s acclaimed Titanic will return to Southwark Playhouse this summer with a new production of George Forrest and Robert Wright’s multiple Tony and Drama Desk award winning Grand Hotel.
The Grand Hotel is bustling with eccentric and sometimes dubious guests: amongst them a fading prima ballerina being forced to dance again; a fatally ill Jewish bookkeeper who wants to spend his final days living in luxury; a young, handsome, but destitute Baron; a cynical doctor suffering from World War I wounds; an honest businessman going bad as he faces financial ruin and a typist dreaming of Hollywood stardom. Over the course of a weekend, their extraordinary stories interweave with each other and the hotel’s hardworking staff.
Acclaimed producer Danielle Tarento once again teams up with Director Thom Southerland to offer a fresh take on this modern classic. Danielle is a multiple-award winner whose recent credits include the acclaimed Gods and Monsters and the fantastic new musical Dogfight. Thom is perhaps best known for the excellent 2011 production of Parade and more recently the European premiere of Jerry Herman’s The Grand Tour at The Finborough.
This exclusive production will run in The Large at Southwark Playhouse for 6 weeks, Friday 31 July – Saturday 5 September. Casting is still to be announced.
