THE LAST SHIP

I just saw The Last Ship on opening night and loved. it, The sets were stunning. The music and choreography was uplifting and lively. I loved seeing Sting in person singing songs. It was a beautiful production all around. It was worth waiting for. I highly recommend this amazing production. It received a long standing ovation from the sold out crowd. Buy your tickets now and you will not be disappointed.

THE LAST SHIP

Our seats were orchestra R. They were great seats. It is suitable for adults and older children, maybe grade five and up as it is over two hours long. The sets of the ocean and the ship docks were very realistic. Thus Irish music was lively and the dancing was well done. The cast were very enthusiastic. It was great to see Sting in person and he is in lots of scenes, singing, speaking, or doing simple dance. The audience liked The Last Ship as it received a long standing ovation from the audience. It is a great production based on the life of Sting and I hope it does well.

THE LAST SHIP

My husband and I attended opening night . The energy of the performer's was incredible. Sets incredible, and a truly engaging story sung in the strongest and truest voices. Having Sting in attendance was a wonderful bonus. We also had great seats, I don't know that I've ever been closer. Wonderful show. Walked out singing!

SONGWRITING GREAT; SHOW BLEAK

The songwriting was really the highlight of this show for me; I’ve always enjoyed the album and the minimalist instrumentation on stage brought out the power of Sting’s ability to craft a great melody. The show, portraying the ship builder community, to me felt very heavy, dreary, and was never truly uplifting. By the second act I was pretty disconnected and was just waiting for the next song. Having known the album beforehand, I felt the song choice was odd since there was songs on the album I was waiting to hear but did not, and they decided to pepper in songs from Stings Soul Cages era. While “All This Time” and “When we Dance” are AMAZING songs, they felt out of place in the play and it bugged me to hear them “broadway-ized”. The Last Ship has great music written for it, keep it in the show! Being a big fan of Stings work this show was worth it for me but as far as a show goes I was disappointed.

MEDIOCRE AT BEST

Overall a long meandering show that tries hard and has a couple of standout performances. If you are seeing this because you are a big Sting fan, you will be disappointed. He isn’t a lead character and he does not sing any solos. He is not onstage for long periods of time and plays a character that is sick so he doesn’t come out with booming vocals. Overall it was a nice night out but we could have done a lot more entertaining things with our $400
