Sting's Broadway Musical Gets Fall Premiere

Sting's musical The Last Ship will hit the Great White Way this fall, premiering at the Neil Simon Theatre on October 26th, with previews scheduled to begin on September 30.

The show stars American Idiot's Michael Esper and Rachel Tucker, who has also appeared in Wicked.

The Last Ship's script was co-written by playwrights John Logan (Red) and Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal). It will be directed by Joe Mantello (Wicked) and choreographed by Steven Hoggett (Once).

The Last Ship is "loosely based on Sting's memories of growing up in England, and is set in a shipbuilding town in the 1980s. The Last Ship tells the story of a man who returns home after traveling the world for 14 years, only to find the local industry in sharp decline and the woman he loves engaged to another man."
