Friday at the Broadway Playhouse in Water Tower Place, Sting, yes Sting, previewed his upcoming musical The Last Ship. With the backing of a legendary talent, The Last Ship will become the next big musical.
During the exclusive previewing of a handful of songs from the upcoming musical, it can be derived that the play seems to focus on the plight of the average ship worker. The music sounded like a fusion of Sting's classic hits with a traditional Broadway feel, more specifically, Les Mis.
Something will be needed to fill the theatrical void after The Book of Mormon turns the page, and The Last Ship should be the front runner.
Sting helped develop the story for the play and composed the original score. The inspiration behind his new venture came from the English shipbuilding town of Wallsend, where Sting grew up.
The Last Ship will coincidentally run in the Bank of America Theatre, where The Book of Mormon was a previous occupant. The already highly-anticipated musical docks in Chicago June 10th - July 13th of 2014. It opens on Broadway in the fall of 2014.
Tickets for The Last Ship are now on sail for groups of 10 or more by calling 312-977-1710. They will soon be available to the general public.
