The Last Ship Broadway opening in fall 2014
Sting CDs at eBay USA | eBay UK | eBay DE
The Last Ship musical will open on Broadway in the fall of 2014, following a pre-Broadway World Premiere from Tuesday, June 10 - Sunday, July 13, 2014 at Chicago's Bank of America Theatre. An epic yet intimate tale inspired by Sting's own childhood experiences, this World Premiere production features direction by two-time Tony Award® winner Joe Mantello (Wicked), a book by Tony Award® winner John Logan (Red) and Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award® winner Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal) and choreography by Olivier Award winner and Tony Award® Nominee Steven Hoggett (Once).
Story synopsis: Life in the English seafaring town of Wallsend has always revolved around the local shipyard, where the hardworking men of this close-knit community 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 fourteen years later, he finds the shipyard's future in grave danger and his childhood sweetheart engaged to someone else. As the men of Wallsend take their fate into their own hands and build a towering representation of the shared dream that has defined their existence, Gideon realizes that he left behind more than he could have ever imagined.
"The memories at the heart of THE LAST SHIP have occupied my mind for most of my life," said Sting. "I was compelled to tell this story, and I've had the great fortune of collaborating with an enormously talented team."
"I can only produce a show that I fall in love with," said producer Jeffrey Seller. "The moment that I heard 'Shipyard,' which was the first song that Sting wrote for this show, I knew two things: that I was in love and that this extraordinary artist knew exactly how to write a Broadway musical."
Performances of The Last Ship will begin at Chicago's Bank of America Theatre (18 West Monroe Street) on June 10, 2014 for a five-week-only limited engagement through July 13, 2014.
