Sting Sails “The Last Ship” One More Time in Joyous Show for Actors Fund...

Hearing the songs from “The Last Ship” a few months after it closed was like meeting up with old friends. The title song is so catchy you can’t get it out of your head. Same for the great stomping “What Have You Got?” (not the real title, but that’s what I call it). The lush ballads are just gorgeous - from “What Say You Meg” to “The Night the Pugilist Learned How to Dance.”
