Sting Reportedly Seeking Investors For Musical

Sting has reportedly begun seeking investors for a new Broadway musical. Word of the project comes in a report from the New York Post claiming that the "Roxanne" rocker is seeking as much as $15 million to bring the show to life.

The musical is reportedly titled The Last Ship and is largely based on his 1991 album The Soul Cages. It's a collaboration between Sting, his wife Trudie Styler and Broadway producer Jeffrey Seller.

According to the Post, Sting has been in attendance at the opening of several Broadway shows in recent weeks attempting to drum up interest.

A staged reading of the musical, complete with music by Sting and book by John Logan, has already taken place. The Post's Broadway reporter Michael Riedel cites sources present saying that while reactions were strong, it may be too art-y for Broadway:

"It's a very good art musical, but I think it belongs at the Public Theater," the source reported.
