There are certain things that really bother me in theater.¬† One of the biggest is when a theater company that is capable of brilliance presents a show that should be a perfect fit ‚Äď and unfortunately ultimately delivers a final product that does not meet my expectations.

With 'velvet stairs, easy chairs, and perfumed air gently blowing,' the Grand Hotel Berlin may not be a character in the traditional meaning of the word, however, it is the catalyst which sets in motion the fate of every guest who walks through its opulent revolving doors. For choreographer Kelly Crandall d'Amboise, it is her job to provide that motion as the production begins performances this week at Signature Theatre.
