VIDEO: Sting Talks 'LAST SHIP', Love of Show Tunes on LENO

Sting stopped by last night's TONIGHT SHOW WITH Jay Leno and talked about his love of show tunes as well as his new musical, The Last Ship, set to hit Broadway in fall of 2014.

"It's really about what happpened to a community when the shipbuilding industry closed down," explained the composer. "Because they're entire sense of self, their dignity was wrapped up in what they built. And they were hugely proud of it."

With an original score by 16-time Grammy Award winner Sting, The Last Ship will have its pre-Broadway World Premiere at Chicago's Bank of America Theatre (18 West Monroe) for a limited five-week engagement June 10 - July 13, 2014.
