The Grand Tour
  • London Fringe

The European premiere of Jerry Hermans 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 Hermans long-awaited return to Broadway after almost a decade away. It finally gets its European premire, directed by Thom Southerland, as part of the Finborough Theatres 20 Premires 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 doesnt 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 Colonels girlfriend, Marianne, they begin their perilous journey on the road to freedom.

Featuring one of Jerry Hermans most engrossing and heartfelt scores, The Grand Tour finds beauty, light and humour in one of historys darkest hours.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
