THE LAST SHIP played its final performance on Broadway on Saturday, January 24, but fans still have another chance to catch the cast in action. Tonight, March 2 (9:30PM), they will reunite at 54 Below for 'Songs in the Quay of Life: THE LAST SHIP Company in Concert.' The original cast and band will celebrate their run with an eclectic evening themed around seafaring songs. Proceeds will go to support Wallsend Boys Club in the north of England, which was founded by shipbuilders.

With performances by: Eric Anderson, Ethan Applegate, Fred Applegate, Dawn Cantwell, Jeremy Davis, Bradley Dean, Alyssa DiPalma, Michael Esper, Colby Foytik, David Michael Garry, Timothy Gulan, Shawna M. Hamic, Rich Hebert, Todd A. Horman, Sarah Hunt, Sean Jenness, Collin Kelly-Sordelet, Drew McVety, Johnny Newcomb, Matthew Stocke, Cullen R. Titmas, Sally Ann Triplett and Jeremy Woodard.

The Last Ship band will include: Dan Lipton (piano, music director), Matt Beck (guitars), Ben Butler (guitars), Pete Donovan (bass), Trey Files (percussion), Lisa Gutkin (violin), Chris Layer (pipes, flutes), Mick McAuley (melodeon), Sonny Paladino (piano), Emily Hope Price (cello).

The Last Ship began previews on Broadway on September 29 prior to its official opening on October 26, 2014. When the show concludes its 4-month engagement, it will have played 29 preview performances on Broadway and 105 regular performances at the Neil Simon Theatre (250 W. 52 St.) Prior to its Broadway debut, The Last Ship had a five-week tryout in Chicago last summer, where it played 38 performances. On December 9, 2014, Sting, who composed The Last Ship's score, joined the cast in the role of Jackie White, the foreman of the shipyard who rallies his community to build one last ship meant to sail the world.

THE LAST SHIP has music and lyrics by Sting, the 16-time Grammy Award winning musician, with a book by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, choreography by Steven Hoggett and is directed by Joe Mantello. Musical direction, orchestrations and arrangements are by Emmy Award-winner Rob Mathes.

THE LAST SHIP is the unforgettable story of passion and hope about a shipbuilding community that rallies to preserve its way of life by building one last ship meant to sail the world, and of a woman who must choose between the two men she loves.
