March 28, 2019

The Last Ship – the acclaimed new musical starring and with music and lyrics by Sting is heading for the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles 14 Jan - 16 Feb 2020 and to the SHN Golden Gate Theatre in San Francisco 20 Feb - 22 Mar 2020. This new production of The Last Ship played an acclaimed U.K. and Ireland tour, followed by a sold-out run in Toronto. An original production first played on Broadway where it earned a Tony Award-nomination for Sting’s score.


This personal, political and passionate new musical from multiple Grammy Award-winner Sting, is an epic account of a family, a community and a great act of defiance. With original music and lyrics by Sting, THE LAST SHIP also features a few of his best-loved songs, including “Island of Souls”, “All This Time,” and “When We Dance.” The production, which was initially inspired by Sting's 1991 album The Soul Cages and his own childhood experiences, tells the story of a community amid the demise of the shipbuilding industry in Tyne and Wear, with the closure of the Swan Hunter shipyard and when the last ship sails.
