About From Here to Eternity
Pearl Harbor, 1941, where the girls sing "don'cha like Hawaii", the men of G Company sing the blues, and where even on an army base, love and desire are never very far away. When the troubled Private Prewitt (Robert Lonsdale) falls for the kind hearted escort Lorene (Siubhan Harrison), and when his platoon sergeant, Warden (Darius Campbell), embarks on a dangerous affair with his commanding officer's wife, Karen (Rebecca Thornhill), the lives of both men are set on a course they cannot control. As war approaches, the worlds of the four lovers and the soldiers of G Company are dramatically ripped apart.
Sir Tim Rice's epic new musical, From Here To Eternity, is adapted from one of the greatest novels of the twentieth century; a gripping tale of illicit love and army life which translates in to a breath-taking, romantic and excitingly original show, set to join the front rank of great musicals.
This year marks 60 years since the film version swept the board at the Academy Awards winning 8 Oscars. The large scale production features a cast of 33 accompanied by a 15-piece orchestra. The release will include an exclusive behind the scenes tour of London's Shaftsbury Theatre and an interview with Sir Tim Rice.
