There was always a problem with Sting’s Broadway musical, “The Last Ship.” Even though the music was par excellence, the songs beyond deliciously hummable, the story was always muddled. I’m thrilled to report that has changed, very much for the better. “The Last Ship” has been rebuilt and is eminently seaworthy. Last night’s premiere in Los Angeles at the Ahmanson Theater was a triumph on so many levels but the biggest was that we finally feel like the people of Wallsend, Newcastle, UK who build ships are getting their due.

Sting wrote the music and lyrics and plays the foreman of a Newcastle shipyard in the show, which draws from his early years growing up in a grim, ship-building town in Northern England. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Sting...

SUMMONER'S TALES...
"I had this mythological idea that real creativity came from pain and loneliness. How could you write a song if you were domestically happy? So, you would manufacture situations where you weren't domestically happy. The blueprint for that kind of life is very clear.
