Overview

This exciting new musical adaptation of James Jones' classic 1951 novel, From Here To Eternity tells an extraordinary story of the passion, honour and devotion of a group of American soldiers in pre-World War II Hawaii.

Loosely based on Jones' experience serving with the Hawaiian Division's 27th Infantry unit, the action is set before and during the 7th December Pearl Harbour attack.

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.

The production marks the West End debut of composer Stuart Brayson and is the first stage musical by Tim Rice (Chess, Evita, Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) in a decade.

  • Darius Campbell (Chicago, West End) plays Warden
  • Siubhan Harrison (Grease, West End) plays Lorene
  • Robert Lonsdale (Anna Christie, Donmar Warehouse) play Prewitt
  • Ryan Sampson (Open Court, Royal Court) plays Maggio and Rebecca Thornhill (South Pacific, UK tour) will play Karen.
