The Last Ship
at Neil Simon Theatre
The Last Ship is a new musical by 16-time Grammy Award winner Sting. The Last Ship is a portrait of a community so bound together by passion, faith and tradition, they'll stop at nothing to preserve the only life they've ever known.
The Last Ship is set in the English seafaring town of Wallsend, a close-knit community where life has always revolved around the local shipyard and the hardworking men who construct impressive vessels with much 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 14 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 future into their own hands and build a towering representation of the shared dream that defines their existence, Gideon realizes that he left behind more than he could have ever imagined.
