NEW YORK (AP) — Singer-songwriter Sting's new musical "The Last Ship" will sail onto a Broadway stage after a stop in Chicago.
Producers said Thursday that the show — inspired by Sting's memories of growing up in a shipbuilding community in northeast England — will appear on Broadway in the fall of 2014 once it makes its world premiere next summer at Chicago's Bank of America Theatre.
The musical has a story by "Red" playwright John Logan and "Next to Normal" writer Brian Yorkey. It will be directed by Joe Mantello, who helmed "Wicked" and have choreography by Steven Hoggett, who did the same for "Once."
Dates, venue and cast have not been released.
Sting is releasing a new CD on Tuesday also called "The Last Ship," inspired by the forthcoming musical.
