"I'm given the licence to do things by previous successes. Those successes meant I could walk into my record company and say: 'I'm making a record of 16th-century art songs on a lute,' and they say, 'Yes, Sting.'"

A musical inspired by Sting's early years on Tyneside has been given a Broadway opening date. The Royal Navy's new toy, HMS Queen Elizabeth, will not join the fleet until 2020 but a significant theatrical vessel has just left port and has a berth on Broadway in the autumn. Sting's musical, The Last Ship, is nearing the end of an encouraging run at the Bank of America Theatre in Chicago. This is the try-out, the equivalent of the sea trials. Far better to get a show watertight than launch it on Broadway's rough seas where a shark-like critic can send it to the bottom, Titanic-style. That has been the costly fate of many a new musical, in Britain and the States. And while Chicago is hardly 'the sticks', it is some way from the New York street where theatrical success shines most brightly. The Last Ship, which has been a labour of love for Sting, closes next weekend at the Bank of America Theatre...

They are calling it a new Broadway musical. But that is a misnomer. Sting's "The Last Ship," which received its much-anticipated world premiere in Chicago on Wednesday night, is an old-fashioned grand opera of the most eloquent sort - awash in both turbulent emotions and intimate dramatic gestures. A true masterwork, it not only keens a ravishing dirge for a lost way of life, and the indomitable spirit of the working class as it continues to stagger through this post-industrial age. But as it spins an eternal tale of the tensions between fathers and sons (and yes, a "holy ghost" of sorts, too), as well as the ardor and disappointments of love, the opposing pull of home and "away," and the need for some form of faith along with ennobling work, it magnifies the human heartbeat, and captures a genuine sense of the yearning that keeps people going...
Just before the first public performance of the musical "The Last Ship" in Chicago, the production's star composer and lyricist was hiding under a mixing console at the back of the theater. Hunkered down by the feet of the sound man, Sting kept out of sight of the ticket holders filing in. After the curtain went up and the prologue began, the singer emerged and stood in the dark aisle, quietly snapping his fingers with the music. Sitting a few feet away, a fan-club member from Italy did a double take and whispered to her friend, "Sting!" He kept his eyes on the stage...
