#SPOTTED: STING IN TORONTO FOR MIRVISH’S “THE LAST SHIP”
Hot off the success of runs in the UK, Chicago and Broadway, 17-time Grammy winner STING brings his musical THE LAST SHIP to Toronto.
Based on his Album The Soul Cage and his own personal childhood experiences growing-up just north of England, The Last Ship is centered on family, community and defiance in the face of deindustrialization.
The Cast includes new talent and veterans of stage and screen including: Frances McNamee, Jackie Morrison, Oliver Seville, Marc Akinfolarin, Joe Caffrey, Rebecca Gilhooley, Philip Childs, Orla Gormley, Sophie Reid and more! Lorne Campbell directs the Musical which is told in the Geordie dialect.
On Valentine’s Day, Sting and the Cast ventured east to Oshawa at Tribute Communities Centre to show their support to GM workers who are facing something very similar to the characters in the story.
The Mirvish Production runs till March 24, 2019 at the Princess of Wales Theatre. Sting has committed to appearing at every performance.
