Based on James Jones' award-winning novel written in 1951 and, later, an eight-time Academy Award winning film (1953) of the same name, "From Here to Eternity" takes place in 1941 in Honolulu. The men of G Company are restless and disgruntled. One of their own, the rebellious but soulful Private Prewitt, falls for escort beauty Lorene, and his platoon sergeant embarks on a dangerous affair with his commander's wife. As the infamous date of the Pearl Harbor attack approaches, the claustrophobic world of the four lovers and the brotherhood of the soldiers of G Company splinter amidst an escalating war. The new musical is an epic, sweeping story of love, redemption and hope set against the backdrop of a beautiful but conflicted paradise. Book byDonald Rice and Bill Oakes. Lyrics by Tim Rice.
