The European premiere of Jerry Herman’s multi Tony Award Nominated Broadway musical - from the same creative team as Titanic, Parade, Mack & Mabel and Victor/Victoria

Opening on Broadway in 1979, The Grand Tour marked Jerry Herman’s long-awaited return to Broadway after almost a decade away. It finally gets its European première, directed by Thom Southerland, as part of the Finborough Theatre’s 20 Premières Season.

France, 1940. Jacobowsky, a Polish Jewish intellectual, has been one step ahead of the Nazis for years. Stjerbinsky, an aristocratic, anti-semitic Polish colonel, is desperately trying to get to England. Jacobowsky has purchased a car, but he doesn’t know how to drive. The Colonel knows how to drive, but has no car. 

When the two meet at a Paris hotel, they agree to join forces in order to escape the approaching Nazis. Together with the Colonel’s girlfriend, Marianne, they begin their perilous journey on the road to freedom. 

Featuring one of Jerry Herman’s most engrossing and heartfelt scores, The Grand Tour finds beauty, light and humour in one of history’s darkest hours.
