New Show in Friedrichstadt-Palast
THE ONE GRAND SHOW
"Even as a little boy, it was my great dream to work on a revue."
Jean Paul GAULTIER
Gaultier is the world star of Parisian Haute Couture. He designed the 500 daring and extravagant costumes. Renowned media such as The Times, The New York Times, VOGUE, ELLE and arte are thrilled.
The ONE Grand Show is an extremely artistic production with the unmistakable hand of showmaker Roland Welke. Extreme splendor is mixed with quiet, poetic and surreal moments. "Arty to the extreme" writes the style-conscious i-D magazine. The spectacular lighting design comes from Emmy Award winner Peter Morse, who has already worked for Michael Jackson, Madonna, Barbra Streisand and Bette Midler.
In the play an abandoned revue theater is awoken from a deep sleep by an underground party. A guest loses himself in the magical aura of the place. In his mind, the theater director awakens the old times. Past and present blur in a daydream. More and more, the young man feels the longing for the one person who means everything for us - THE ONE.
Revueshows do not have a narrative in the classical sense. The artistic connection, which combines the collage of scenes, are the dream visions of the party guests. The dimensions are visually overwhelming: more than 100 artists on the largest theater stage in the world, a production budget of more than eleven million euros, the most elaborate show in Europe.
The New York Times recommends the palace as a "must-see" for every visit to Berlin. Lonely Planet raves about "the glamour of Las Vegas". On the large review sites our grand shows have a 96 percent recommendation rate.
