“I’ll remember this day for the rest of mylife.”

Tim Rice, Stuart Brayson, Donald Rice and Bill Oakes’ epic musical From Here To Eternity returns to London for the first time in an exhilarating new production.

Adapted from the classic novel by James Jones and the Oscar-winning movie starring Burt Lancaster and Deborah Kerr, this gripping tale of illicit love and army life is a breath-taking and romantic musical set against the backdrop of Pearl Harbor in 1941. This new production features an updated score, with all-new musical numbers, newly orchestrated by Nick J Barstow.

From Here To Eternity marked Tim Rice’s first new stage musical for over 10 years. Among the many smash hit musicals he co-wrote are Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Chess and The Lion King. He has won 12 Ivor Novello awards, 4 Tonys and 3 Oscars and an Emmy.

The musical unites the writing talents of Tim Rice (lyrics), Stuart Brayson(music) and Donald Rice and Bill Oakes (book), and is directed by Brett Smock, Artistic Director of The Rev Theatre in New York.

Based on the novel by James Jones
