The original production of the musical at the Liverpool Playhouse was a highlight of the city’s 2008 capital of culture celebrations playing to packed houses over an extended run. It received rave reviews from the critics who described it as: “the best new show to hail from Liverpool since Blood Brothers”. In 2010 WKLOS was privileged to perform the non-professional premiere of the musical at the Floral Pavilion and enjoyed similar success.

On a busy day of hen parties and difficult customers, Jo, an ambitious young manager torn between her career and her new romance, is alerted to the presence of a stray guest on the Adelphi roof. Silhouetted against the skyline she finds the mysterious Alice, who used to meet her long-lost lover Thompson on that very spot decades before. Through Alice’s vibrant and poignant reminiscences Jo is transported back to the 1930s when the glitz and glamour would pour off the luxury liners for their first taste of England, a night in the city’s most fashionable hotel, mingling with both aristocratic guests and hotel employees. Fate, Hollywood, World War II and a dizzying array of staff and guests all intervene in an epic Liverpool love story spanning 70 years.

With a toe-tapping score and a host of exuberant characters this romantic musical journey across the decades is a joyful celebration of one of Britain’s most renowned and iconic hotels. Ten years on from the city’s 2008 Capital of Culture celebrations this is an opportunity to relive the magic of this uplifting, vibrant and colourful family musical.
