Sting Spending Time in Chicago to Prepare His Broadway Musical "The Last Ship"

CBS 2 Chicago: Every breath he takes seems to captivate crowds.  Now rock superstar Sting is spending the summer in Chicago, tweaking a new musical he's written that's bound for the Broadway stage.

Inspired by Sting’s own childhood, the musical The Last Ship is set in an English seafaring town that operates around the local shipyard and follows Gideon Fletcher, a man who left home to see the world and returns fourteen years later to find that the future of the shipyard is in danger. The shipyard’s workers decide to take their fate into their own hands and build a towering representation of the shared dream that has defined their existence.

Sting will sing during the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley Field on June 23, 2014, while he is in Chicago this summer tweaking his broadway musical.
