Another show that I’m blogging about a bit late in the game for you guys to go see as sadly From Here to Eternity closes on Saturday 29th March. It’s understandable though just due to the sheer amount of choice people have for theatre in London and had it not been for some epically discounted tickets via LastMinute.com I probably wouldn’t have chosen to go see it over some of the other offerings but boy am I glad I did.

I ended up with spectacular second row seats for just £19.50 which meant I didn’t miss a thing (in my opinion they were actually a little too close to the stage to be comfortable) and I knew from the stunning choreography of the first number that I was in for a treat. I personally adored the slow motion sections which sound pretty cheesy but were arranged perfectly and really added to the emotion of the scenes. Based on the 1953 movie of the same name starring Burt Lancaster and Frank Sinatra it is essentially a love story but with the undertones of war thrown into the mix it is definitely not just one for the ladies.

The show is everything you would want from a musical with a great score, lyrics by theatre master Tim Rice, fantastic singing and dancing as well as being a little bit sexy. It’s a shame that such a great performance had to come to an end but alas it must, as all good things should.
