The new Sting production, The Last Ship, is a reflection on the singer's past and a study of working-class woes. There's nothing campier than the collapse of a British industrial town. Or at least that's what a handful of recent Broadway shows would have us believe. In the past decade, we’ve seen musicals about unemployed blokes who are saved from despair by drag queens (Kinky Boots) and male stripping (The Full Monty), and even Billy Elliot took a break from the hero's tender ballet dreams to stage a zany puppet show about Margaret Thatcher.

As a cast of rugged men and women, looking as likely to populate a pub in the north of England as a Broadway stage, sways on stools and uncoils rounds of rope, belting out a rousing shanty, the familiar brow darkens, a foot taps anxiously to the beat, arms wrapping tight around a slim torso like a self-enforces straitjacket. Sting is tense...
