The Grand Theatre is proud to present the world premiere of an original rock musical, A Wall Apart, Aug. 15 through Sept. 7. The musical is presented in a more intimate setting as part of the theatre’s Backstage series, with audience members sitting on stage with the actors.
With scars from one war, three brothers in East Berlin face another battle as the Berlin Wall divides their city. As the brothers strive to find their way, three generations of family ties, brotherhood, love, marriage and parenthood are tested. What is the price of liberty? Will the wall divide or unite this family?
The Grand Theatre performances feature the New York Musical Festival production team, with music and lyrics by Lord Graham Russell of Air Supply. The musical is based on a book by Sam Goldstein and Craig Clyde and comes to the stage to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the destruction of the Berlin Wall.
