“What You Need” – Grand Hotel

Music and Lyrics: Robert Wright & George Forrest

What you need today is a delicious song from a grand musical.  Look no further.  Vicki Baum’s novel Menschen Im Hotel and the 1932 film Grand Hotel based on it are the inspiration for this opulent show about the intriguing guests and staff of a luxurious hotel in 1920’s Berlin.  Retiring prima ballerina Elizaveta Grushinskaya’s confidante Rafaella considers her needs and that of her mistress who she secretly desires in this wistful number.
