Sting Coming to St. Paul to Perform His Musical “The Last Ship”
Sting will be sailing into St. Paul next spring to perform his semi-autobiographical musical "The Last Ship."
After a four-month run on Broadway, former Police frontman Sting has announced he'll be bringing his Tony Award-winning musical "The Last Ship" to St. Paul in April.
"The Last Ship" -- inspired by Sting's childhood in England -- tells the story of the small English community of Wallsend. Life there revolves around the shipyard and the men in it. But when the shipyard's future becomes jeopardized, the community takes their fate into their own hands.
According to Bring Me the News, Sting plays the shipyard foreman Jackie White, who along with wife Peggy 'fights to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.'"
"The Last Ship" will run April 8-19 at the Ordway Music Theater in St. Paul. Pre-sale tickets are available now for ticketholders for the 2019-2020 season; they're also available to anyone purchasing tickets to see "42nd Street." Tickets otherwise go on sale to the public this fall.
