Robert Lonsdale Cast in Montgomery Clift Role in From Here to Eternity

The first bit of casting for the new Tim Rice musical From Here to Eternity was revealed this weekend at West End Live in Trafalgar Square when Robert Lonsdale stepped on to the stage to perform a song from the show titled "Fight The Fight". (Previewed by Michael Ball on his new  Both Sides Now album).

Lonsdale is the bugle playing Private Robert E Lee Prewitt (performed by Montgomery Clift  in the 1953 Oscar winning film). He was introduced by Tim Rice who described him as "a young man with enormous talent". He has recently appeared in Brilliant Adventures at the Royal Court, A Life at the Finborough and Anna Christie (with  Jude Law and Ruth Wilson) at the Donmar.

You can hear him talking about the show here.

From Here to Eternity opens at the Shaftesbury Theatre on 23rd October (previews from 30th September).
