"The technology of making records now is so sophisticated that you could literally spend the rest of your life on two or three bars of music if you wanted to. I think that process takes away the spontaneity of making records. The Beatles made some of the greatest pop records in two or three days so you need to bring some of that urgency and risk taking into record making now."

''...if you are the kind of theatre-goer who believes that the musical theatre is capable of anything in the right hands; if you like difficult themes and complex characters; if you enjoy songs which illuminate the personalities, relationships and feelings of the characters singing them; if you don't mind dark, grim themes that reflect reality; if you appreciate an analysis of hard questions, inventive staging, a score that has a muscular, cohesive wholeness; if you like your musicals performed by people who are actually capable of acting their roles and singing their songs; if that is you, then The Last Ship is a great trick: a real Broadway treat in totally unexpected form. This really is an excellent new musical. Great cast, great score, great characters and a story full of the rawness of life and the hairline between happiness and tragedy. It's not Billy Elliot at the seaside and nor is it Once with ships. It's a unique vision, which turns on love, identity and acceptance. A great night in the theatre..." reports BritishTheatre.com

Tune in to NBC's Today Show on Friday morning (7 Nov) to see a LIVE performance from The Last Ship stars Michael Esper, Rachel Tucker and Aaron Lazar, as well as a backstage tour with Sting and Al Roker!
It's Thursday noon, four days after Sting's semi-autobiographical Broadway musical The Last Ship has opened at last. The famous English rock star, now 63, with the body of a 21-year-old, is loping around his Central Park West aerie mostly grinning. On Sunday morning, Sting tells me, he felt a strange dread he couldn't shake. For months he'd been spooked by nightmares of Ben Brantley coming in and killing his labor of love. Then it was announced that theater critic Charles Isherwood would be dispatched instead. "I always knew we'd come to that day, and everything would turn to shit," he says...
