The Last Ship

The week after we returned home from England, we attended the world premiere of Sting's musical, The Last Ship.  It opened in Chicago before heading to Broadway this fall.  Tony thought that if we went on opening night we might see Sting there.  We did.  He was in the back by the soundboard but was never mentioned and never addressed the audience.  We haven't seen many shows, and we were surprised by the foul language (although looking back I shouldn't have been, knowing it was loosely based on Sting's life and involved sailors...).  The songs were very nice, and the show was interesting enough.  The set was pretty cool.  Most of the songs can be found on Sting's latest album by the same name.  I do love Sting's music, though, so I did enjoy the show.
