Stings new incarnation of his play based on themes from his 1992 Soul Cages album explores his upbringing and decision to leave his shipbuilding town. He pays homage to his roots and the hard working men and women of Newcastle upon Tyne. Wonderfully acted, sung,...More

An excellent production - the songs, the singing, the sets - all exceptional. And in such bad weather, it was great to see an almost full house. Love the fact that I can park underground and just take an elevator up to the theatre without...More

Was somewhat reluctantly persuaded to go see this last night because storyline didn’t sound appealing - SO pleased I did - fantastic show with great music, dancing and very moving storylines. The entire cast was superb with Sting playing very much in the ensemble rather...More

Sting’s The Last Ship is that extreme rarity, something that makes a political and autobiographical point but is also enormously entertaining and indeed extraordinarily moving. It’s the best production I’ve seen in Toronto since Come From Away, which is high praise. It’s the story of...More

If you liked " Come From Away" ---- this was as good if not better. Having a mother that was born in Gateshead I know the impact the decline of ship-building had on the Tyne. Sting's lyrics (especially the ballads) were outstanding. The cast were...More

I just saw the Sunday matinee show of "The Last Ship" with Sting- it was excellent! Great performances by all, wonderful music and a good story. Seats were good too- sat in the Directors Circle, seat J 48 which had a good view! Enjoy!

Go see this show with Sting. More people need to see this show. It has such depth. It has so many spiritual overtones. I still like the Broadway script the best but this is a rare opportunity to see Sting in it.

Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination

and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with
a strong student influence from the Ryerson University
Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in
flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities,
with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of

I did see booster seats that kids were using. They were supplied by the theatre. I don’t know how many are available and if it’s a first come first served situation .

If you're in Row AAA, you have an unobstructed view of the stage and the actors on it. If you want to feel as a spectator that you're a part of the performance, this is as close as you'll get. I loved being able to see the... More
