Don't miss the world premiere production of Tim Rice's magnificent new epic musical FROM HERE TO ETERNITY. Adapted from one of the greatest novels of the 20th century, this gripping tale of illicit love and army life is a breathtaking, romantic and excitingly original show that is set to join the front rank of great musicals.
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 falls for the kind hearted escort club girl Lorene, and when his platoon sergeant, Warden, embarks on a dangerous affair with his commanding officer’s wife, Karen, 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.
Starring Darius Campbell (Warden), Robert Lonsdale (Prewitt), Rebecca Thornhill (Karen), Siubhan Harrison (Lorene) and Ryan Sampson (Maggio).
Based on the 1951 debut novel by James Jones, FROM HERE TO ETERNITY also inspired the iconic 1953 Oscar-winning film starring Burt Lancaster, Deborah Kerr, Montgomery Clift, Donna Reed and Frank Sinatra. The show features lyrics by the Tony, Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy award-winning Sir Tim Rice (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, The Wizard of Oz, and Disney’s Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King).
Tamara Harvey (Plague Over England, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest, Whipping It Up and Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare’s Globe) directs, with music by Stuart Brayson, book by Bill Oakes, set and costume designs by Soutra Gilmour, with David White as orchestrater, musical supervisor and director.
