Presse

NICHOLAS DE JONGH for THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Well-sung production...how utterly entranced and moved I was....worth a four-star rating"
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT says, "Michael Grandage's splendid studio-sized version at the Donmar Warehouse hits you with a thrilling, complicitous immediacy."
CHARLES SPENCER for THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "It's a stylish and enjoyable production, but... Grandage can't quite disguise the fact that Grand Hotel is often second-rate."
MICHAEL BILLINGTON for THE GUARDIAN says, "It isn't a classic Berlin musical. But it manages to suggest that a hotel offers a microcosm of human experience; and, when the cast lines up against the back wall economically to evoke a disgruntled shareholders' meeting or a depleted ballet-audience, you know you are in the hands of a master director."
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE for THE TIMES says, "If you ignore many of the lyrics — “here’s the place where the great ones walk, here’s the place where the smart ones talk” — you should enjoy tunes that have a Weimar lilt in keeping both with the period, which is 1928.....But there’s still too much dud dialogue and, if you’ll permit the paradox, too much overblown banality."
ALSTAIR MACAULAY for THE FINANCIAL TIMES says, "A much-needed reminder that a musical can be musically thrilling - and can count as true music drama, too. This new production at the Donmar Warehouse also leaves an intensely stylish visual impression."
LISA MARTLAND for THE STAGE says, "Intimate as the Donmar.....drawing the audience in so close that it is almost impossible not to experience the guests’ feelings of passion, hope and despair."

Commentaire

Michael Grandage’s scaled-down production in the Donmar was much better received than the original short-run, lavish Dominion Theatre production twelve years earlier - though the book itself was still considered to be a handicap. This time there was much praise for the intimacy of the performances and the emotional appeal of the score.

Commentaires : Based on the 1928 novel by Vicki Baum and originally produced in New York on Nov 12th 1989 where it ran for 1.018 performances. The show was given without an interval, and since it lasted just over two hours this was the source of much comment. Although the production was greatly praised, for its performers, staging and direction, it only managed to run for four months.
