From Here to Eternity

Tim Rice will bring the musical version of From Here To Eternity, based on the James Jones novel, to Shaftesbury Theatre, beginning September 30, with an opening set for October 23, 2013.

Published in 1951, From Here To Eternity was James Jones’ début novel. It won him the National Book Award for fiction in 1952. It is loosely based on Jones’s 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 It has recently been announced that the novel will be re-released with previously unpublished material included.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.

It's a thundery, soggy afternoon when I speak to Robert Lonsdale; we've both, weirdly, had the same experience of getting caught in the rain earlier in the day, running from our respective physio appointments to shelter from the seasonal storm. He sounds on good form, though; and why wouldn't he be?

One has to admire the bravery of anyone who's willing to launch a brand-new musical at the Shaftesbury Theatre. Despite the successes of Hairspray and Rock of Ages, people seem to enjoy whispering about the 'curse of the Shaftesbury' due to its string of flops, and it seems to me that a fair number of onlookers really do want new shows to fail just for the continuation of this coincidental curse.
