The Royal Navy's new toy, HMS Queen Elizabeth, will not join the fleet until 2020 but a significant theatrical vessel has just left port and has a berth on Broadway in the autumn. Sting's musical, The Last Ship, is nearing the end of an encouraging run at the Bank of America Theatre in Chicago. This is the try-out, the equivalent of the sea trials.
