Deserving of Tony Awards!

Last summer, I saw The Last Ship when it previewed in Chicago. I found the production to be absolutely mesmerizing, and moving. It is at times funny, at times quite moving. The score resonates. It is brilliant. Yesterday, I flew from Chicago to New York to see The Last Ship a second time. Yes, it is worthy of taking a plane, bus or train to see. Really. Bravo Sting!

Unexpected delight, loved it

The score was poetry set to music, pure Sting. The cast was wonderful, great voices, good acting. It was a pure delight, and unexpected. It had all the components of a first class Broadway show.

A hidden Gem

This isn't a cartoon turned into a play- it's much more. It has a story, interesting characters and a grata score by Sting. The new songs are even more appealing than the few older Sting songs. The story is affecting on many levels. This musical is among the best playing right now and well worth the money, especially when there are lots if discounts available. Go see it!

A wonderful broadway experience!

Loved every minute of this well orchestrated story of the lives of Irish shipworkers. Many of the songs gave us the chills. The cast is a+ and perfectly in tune. The duets exquisite. Sting appeared at the curtain call with devil horns. The cast and audience went crazy. Go see the last ship. You will be totally entertained.

Theater History being made

I always think how thrilling it would it been like to experience such classics as "I Could have Danced all Night" (My Fair Lady) or "Almost Like Being in Love: (Brigadoon) in their original productions. Well I feel that I experienced such theater history while watching "The Last Ship" in its Chicago production this past summer. "The Night Pugilist Learned to Dance" was theater history being made. See this show because I predict it it will be making musical theater history when it opens this fall. I saw this show when it previewed in Chicago - It was wonderful - fantastic music and a strong story with a lot of heart highlighted by strong performances. Sure, a few things need to tightened... but if they do... this will be THE show to see this Fall.
