Sting Boards the Cast of His Broadway Musical The Last Ship

first_img Featuring a book by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, The Last Ship is inspired by Sting’s own childhood experiences and his album of the same name. It is set in an English seafaring town that operates around the local shipyard and follows Gideon Fletcher, a man who left home to see the world and returns fourteen years later to find that the future of the shipyard is in danger. The shipyard’s workers decide to take their fate into their own hands and build a towering representation of the shared dream that has defined their existence. The new tuner, directed by Joe Mantello, has had disappointing box office grosses since opening on October 26 at the Neil Simon Theatre. It earned $536,449 out of a potential $1,243,260 for the week ending November 16. “I’ve been working on this show for five years and been at every rehearsal, every performance, so it’s not like I’ve flown in from Planet Rock Star to save the day,” said Sting told The New York Times. View Comments The cast also includes Broadway faves Michael Esper and Aaron Lazar, Rachel Tucker, Fred Applegate, Sally Ann Triplett and Collin Kelly-Sordelet. Related Shows The previously reported rumors were true. Sting will join the cast of his Broadway musical The Last Ship on December 9. The Grammy winner will replace Jimmy Nail as Jackie White and perform in the production through January 10, 2015.

Walsh ‘perplexed’ by Fly doubters

first_imgRuby Walsh has revealed he is “utterly perplexed” by the negativity surrounding Hurricane Fly as he aims to regain his crown in Tuesday’s Stan James Champion Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival. Press Association The 2011 winner was a disappointing third when odds-on favourite 12 months ago, but has appeared as good as ever in three starts this season, completing the hat-trick with his third triumph in the Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown. “I know there has been much negativity of late about the horse, but it has left me utterly perplexed,” the jockey said in his Irish Examiner column. center_img “All I will say is that those of us closest to him are more than happy at where he is at the moment.” Having suffered two heavy falls at Leopardstown last weekend, Walsh has not been seen in competitive action since and will not be back in the saddle until the start of the Festival. He said: “My absence is purely precautionary and I’m 100% ready to go. I left Leopardstown, however, with a sprained ankle and it was badly bruised. “I could have ridden this week, no problem, but both Willie Mullins and Paul Nicholls were anxious I gave it a skip and to arrive fresh and well for the start of the Festival. “It’s a similar situation for Paul Townend, who was also in the wars at Leopardstown. Willie wanted Paul to also head straight to Cheltenham and that is now the case. “Our whole season, of course, has been geared towards this extravaganza and it is terrific that both Willie and Paul’s horses are in the form of their lives. “That wasn’t the case a year ago, when they were just a bit flat. I don’t think Nicky Henderson – he had seven winners last year – will find it as easy this time round.” last_img read more
