The Last Ship opens on Broadway

NYC 10-26-14: "The Last Ship" opens on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theater.

"The Last Ship" which marks Sting's debut as a Broadway composer is set in the English seaside town of Wallsend, a close-knit community where life has always revolved around the local shipyard and the hardworking men who construct magnificent vessels with tremendous pride. But Gideon Fletcher dreams of a different future. He sets out to travel the world, leaving his life and his love behind. When Gideon returns home many years later, he finds the shipyard's future in grave danger and his childhood sweetheart engaged to someone else. The love triangle ignites just as the men and women of Wallsend take their future into their own hands and build a towering representation of the shared dream that defines their existence. And in the end Gideon comes to understand that he had indeed left behind more than he could have imagined.
