Delve inside the rehearsal room for From Here to Eternity!

The eagerly anticipated revival opens at the Charing Cross Theatre later this month.

The show is penned by Tim Rice, Stuart Brayson, Donald Rice and Bill Oakes and is set in the two weeks leading up to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor. It is based on James Jones' novel of the same name.

This newly revised staging, beginning performances on 29 October, marks the first revival of the show since its original West End run at the Shaftesbury Theatre in 2013.
