Named Best Musical of 2014 by USA Today, THE LAST SHIP marks Sting’s Broadway debut as a composer. Sting currently appears in the musical as Jackie White, the foreman of a shipyard who rallies his community in Wallsend to build one last ship meant to sail the world. A celebration of passion and hope, The Last Ship tells the story of a community determined to preserve the only way of life it has ever known, and a woman who must choose between the two men she loves. www.thelastship.com
