From Here to Eternity

Fri, 26th Oct 12
A brand new musical theatre version of James Jones' classic novel is to open at the Shaftesbury Theatre in autumn 2013

From Here to Eternity on stage in 2013The result of a collaboration between Tim Rice (lyrics), Stuart Brayson (music) and Bill Oakes (book) and directed by Tamara Harvey, this new musical will appear in London October 2013 (previews from 30th September).This will be Stuart Bryson's West End debut and the first new stage musical for Tim Rice in ten years.

From Here to Eternity is an extraordinary story of passion and honour, which takes place on the Hawaiian island of Oahu, in 1941, shortly before and during the Pearl Harbor attack of 7 December. Published in 1951, From Here To Eternity was James Jones' début novel and it won him the National Book Award for fiction in 1952. It is loosely based on Jones' experiences in the pre-World War II Hawaiian Division's 27th Infantry and the unit in which he served. The 1953 film and subsequent TV mini-series were adapted from the novel. It has recently been announced that the novel will be re-released with previously unpublished material included. In 1953 the novel was adapted into a film directed by Fred Zinnemann and produced by Buddy Adler, starring Burt Lancaster, Frank Sinatra, Montgomery Clift, Ernest Borgnine, Deborah Kerr and Donna Reed. The film won 8 Academy Awards out of 13 nominations.
