This, of course, is not it, but the same elements/scenerio occurs in the recent “Muppet Wanted” movie.  Kermit escapes from a Russian gulag this way.  A reference to the original?  Perhaps.

I have a memory from many years ago (so it could be wrong) of some POW escape film ending with the escapees going out from underneath a stage after some theatrical or vaudeville performance. My recollection is that they go behind the curtains during the applause and instead of coming out for the curtain call go into their tunnel. The last shot in my memory of it is of a needle on a record they played as a diversion going round and round.

I haven't seen Huston's Victory in a long time but plot summaries on-line suggest they escape through a shower room. Hart's War, as I remember, ends with prisoners still in the camp at its liberation.
