What Is THE LAST SHIP Like?
This is a large-scale musical that tells a grandiose story of ambition with a love story at its heart. The story centers on Gideon, a young man who had left behind the love of his life, as well as his father and the shipping industry in his hometown in the English seafaring town of Wallsend, in order to forge his own path in the world. Fifteen years later, he returns following his father’s death, and rekindles with his old flame, who now has a fifteen year-old son. The musical is rife with gorgeous songs, some of which hark back to The Threepenny Opera, which Sting starred in on Broadway in 1989. Sting has described The Last Ship as an ode to his own life and the creative block that he has suffered over the last few years
