The story is set in the English seafaring town of Wallsend where Gideon Fletcher dreams of traveling the world. He leaves his life and love behind and returns after 14 years to find the town’s shipyard in trouble and his childhood sweetheart engaged to another. The epic yet intimate tale inspired by Sting’s childhood will be directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Wicked). The book will be written by Tony winner John Logan (Red, I’ll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers) and Pulitzer Prize and Tony winner Brian Yorkey (Next to Normal). Choreography is by Olivier winner and Tony nominee Steven Hoggett (Once).

Principal roles will be played by Broadway veterans Michael Esper (The Lyons), Aaron Lazar (Mamma Mia!, A Little Night Music), and Fred Applegate (Sister Act, The Producers), British performers Rachel Tucker (London Wicked), singer-songwriter Jimmy Nail, Sally Anne Triplett (Chess) and Collin Kelly-Sordelet.

Preview performances for The Last Ship begin Sept. 30 at the Neil Simon Theatre in advance of an opening on Oct. 26. Get tickets!
