BK.Dramaturge: "Final Day, the Musical has the potential to be the contemporary musical of the decade. It's an idea that's rarely been touched upon before. A terrible period of human history becomes the heart of a musical. In the center of evil, a love story with some comedy relief, explores how people dealt and coped with the hatred and darkness of this era."

Their camp is in the center of a ring of advancing American and Russian troops. Star-crossed lovers, a German Officer and a Jewish women, are reunited on this final day and together devise a plan that might stop the execution. Their love story began many years before the war.
