Kennedy Prize-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau, Olivier Award-winning choreographer Sergio Trujillo, and two-time Tony Award®-winning director Des McAnuff bring you this thrilling story of brotherhood, family, loyalty, and betrayal. Get ready for iconic hits like My Girl, Just My Imagination, and Papa Was a Rolling Stone and the signature dance moves that made the “Classic Five” Temptations part of cultural history forever.

The Last Ship is the heartfelt and empowering new musical by multiple Grammy Award winner Sting. Featuring original music and lyrics by Sting as well as a few of his best-loved songs-Island of Souls, All This Time and When We Dance-The Last Ship is coming to Toronto from a critically acclaimed UK and Irish tour.
Set in the shipbuilding community in Tyne and Wear, UK, The Last Ship tells the story of a young man who returns home after seventeen years at sea. The tensions between past and future flare in both his family and his town. He finds that the local shipyard, around which the community has always revolved, is closing and no one knows what will come next, only that a half-built ship towers over the terraces of working-class homes. With the engine fired and pistons in motion, picket lines are drawn as the foreman and his wife fight to hold their community together in the face of the gathering storm.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Sting star in this “thrilling and stirring musical” (The Guardian), only in Toronto and only for a strictly limited engagement.
