Theatre Review: From Here To Eternity The Musical

Based on the novel by: James Jones

Director: Tamara Harvey

Cast: Robert Lonsdale, Siubhan Harrison, Darius Campbell, Rebecca Thornhill, Ryan Sampson

Synopsis: Set in the months leading up to Pearl Harbour, when the troubled Private Prewitt (Robert Lonsdale) falls for the kind hearted escort club girl Lorene (Siubhan Harrison), and when his platoon sergeant, Warden (Darius Campbell), embarks on an 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 lovers and the soldiers of G Company are dramatically changed forever.

From Here to Eternity has almost everything you want from a musical: style, catchy songs and an engaging storyline. Whilst the older generation might remember the 1953 film and the 1979 television mini series, the musical actually bears more resemblance to the James Jones novel on which all three are based.

The first question is the harder to answer. In Oakes's version, the story is certainly a lot grittier than in the 1953 Fred Zinnemann movie as it follows the intertwined fortunes of three soldiers.
