I have dreamed of working on a revue ever since I was a little boy."

Gaultier is a global superstar of the Parisian haute couture. It was him who designed the 500 daring and extravagant costumes. Renowned media such as The Times, The New York Times, VOGUE, ELLE, and arte are excited. THE ONE Grand Show is an extremely artistic piece defined by show producer Roland Welke’s typical style. Lavish grandeur alternates with quiet, poetic, and surreal moments. “Arty to the extreme” as the stylish i-D Magazine writes. The spectacular lighting design was created by Emmy awardee Peter Morse who has already worked for Michael Jackson, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, and Bette Midler.

The piece shows an abandoned revue theater, awoken from sound sleep by an underground party. One guest loses himself, entranced by the magic aura of the place. The former theater directress revives old times before his inner eye. His waking dream blurs the line between past and present. The young man increasingly senses a longing for the person in life that means everything to us – THE ONE

Revues do not have a continuing story line in a classical sense. The artistic context connecting the collage of show pictures can be found in the party guest’s dream visions. The dimensions are visually overwhelming: more than 100 artists on the world’s biggest theater stage, a production budget of more than eleven million euros; Europe’s most elaborate show.

The New York Times recommends the Palast as “must-see” during every visit to Berlin. Lonely Planet raves about the “Glamour à la Las Vegas”. On the major review portals, up to 96 per cent of guests recommend our show.

It’s like a dream come true. Jean Paul always wanted to step out of his comfort zone and do something like this. And after two years of work, it’s finally real. The Palast is a monument for Berlin with an impressive story. I’m happy that it’s still open. And I would love to sing here as well.

I am full of enthusiasm and can hardly believe it: this is the future of theater shows! There is nothing like it anywhere else in the world. This is the beginning of something entirely new. Simply divine. It all fits together here: the music, dancing, artistry, colours.

It is unbelievably good. The costumes are insane. I really am lost for words. It is one of the best show I have ever seen in my life.

This wonderful show is a montage mix of the Moulin Rouge, Las Vegas and Cirque Du Soleil. With wonderful costume designs by Jean Paul Gaultier and fabulous choreography, it is worth visiting Berlin for this show alone. Simply superb!


Nice, modern venue. You have to leave your coats in a cloackroom, but they're really quick at getting them back after the show so you hardly have to wait. The show was amazing. Costumes fabulous, amazing variety, acrobats incredible and ...

Incredible shows hosted in beautiful interiors! Absolutely breathtaking interiors: red carpets, crystal chandeliers and all that jazz! Beautiful venue, nice location, it's definitely a pearl of the quarter. Also, comfortable seats and it fits quite a bit of viewers.

Great and spectacular. Super! Unforgettable evening. Everything was perfect, the venue, the comfortable stay in the theatre and in the lounge.


This is more of an experience, and a very positive one, than a show with a story! The gowns and the costumes are fabulous and an absolute extravaganza. What a mind and imagination of the concepts to think up the ...


Wow, we visited this Palast to see THE ONE Grand Show which was the highlight of our holiday in Berlin. What a spectacle! Beautiful clothing by Jean Paul Gaultier, amazing dancers and a must see show.


Wow! A feast for the eye - I loved the venue and the show. […] The set worked well. The costumes are amazing and the acts brilliant.


The Palast puts on a new show every two years. THE ONE Grand Show is a fantasy, a colorful production with great music and top flight acrobatics. It is Berlin's showcase theater, with the world's largest stage.

Fantastic. Perfect combination of colors, dance and music.


THE ONE Grand Show at the Friedrichstadt-Palast was hands down the best show I've ever seen!




Saw the revue called THE ONE Grand Show at Friedrichstadt-Palast, the largest show theatre in Europe. The costumes were by Jean Paul Gaultier and were completely out of control (in the best way). Just go see it.


Another incredible Berlin event!!


What an amazing show! I couldn't decide where to look. The athletes, the COSTUMES!!!


Classical last night and well.... an indescribable, extraordinary.... awesome show today @PalastBerlin


We had the great privilege to visit one of the most outstanding events of the year – THE ONE Grand Show in Berlin!


What a fabulous show! The Gaultier costumes, the dreamscapes, the aerial, the firebreathers, stiltwalkers, live Orchestra and vocals... I'm so lucky to be here...


THE ONE Grand show! Out of the zillion things to do in Berlin, this must top your list if you are not just into conventional traveling. The show is held at the Palast Berlin theater, located in the Berlin Mitte ...
