However, underneath it all, much is happening with the Grand Hotel's illustrious clients. Inspired by Vicki Baum's period novel, issues of life and death, financial ruin, the beginnings of National Socialism, love and murder converge as people and come and go through the lobby of the Grand Hotel.

NOTE: Me and My Girl is a true classic English music hall style musical. The upper class characters are all reminiscent of characters in a Nancy Mitford novel. The show opened on Broadway at the Marquis theatre on August 10, 1986. The production made Robert Lindsay an international star. It was first performed on the West End in December of 1937 as a "vehicle" for the popular clown, Lupino Lane. For the modern incarnation, Noel Gay’s son, Richard Armitage, went on a search to put back together the script that was largely lost through the years. Along with original director Mike Ockrent, he and Stephen Fry incorporated songs from other shows and came up with the show that is available today.
