The program offers unique insight into the creative process behind Sting’s latest album and his new musical, premiering June 2014 in Chicago before its debut on Broadway in the fall.

Sting: The Last Ship, airing Friday, February 21, 2014 at 9 p.m. on WXXI-TV, features the 16-time Grammy Award-winning musician performing songs from his new album, The Last Ship, and forthcoming play of the same name in an intimate evening of music and storytelling live at The Public Theater in New York City. Drawing upon his childhood memories growing up in the shipbuilding community of Wallsend in the northeast of England, Sting provides a glimpse into the narrative of the play through the songs on the new album, inspired by the story of The Last Ship.
