Photo Flash: First Look at FROM HERE TO ETERNITY at Ogunquit Playhouse

BroadwayWorld has a first look at the North American rollout of the new musical From Here to Eternity, on stage now through October 29.

The musical is based on the acclaimed novel (which also became a multi-Academy Award-winning film), by James Jones with lyrics by Tim Rice, book by Donald Riceand Bill Oakes and music by Stuart Brayson. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!

As part of its development path to Broadway, Sir Tim Rice is collaborating with the Ogunquit creative team to mount this compelling new musical set in Hawaii in the weeks before the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor.

This epic tale follows the powerful story of two U.S soldiers, the soulful Private Prewitt played by Derek Carleyand ardent Sergeant Warden, played by Kevin Aichele, as they embark on doomed and dangerous love affairs with the wrong women. The sultry wife of G Company's commanding officer, Karen Holmes, is played by Robyn Hurder, and Lorene, the beautiful escort who is looking to make a better life for herself, is played by Jenna Nicole Schoen. As the infamous date of December 7th approaches, the claustrophobic world of the four lovers and the desperation of the soldiers of G Company splinter amidst an escalating war. The compelling story of men at war along with a fantastic new score is not to be missed.
