Perez Reviews: The Last Ship

| Filed under: Broadway BabiesStingPerez Reviews

The Last Ship is the first musical of the new Broadway season we have seen and it is ambitious and it's from Sting and, unfortunately, it's very disappointing.

The best way to describe the show is… like Billy Elliot without any gayness or without the heart and dazzle that show has.

The Last Ship is bleak, and though there are some moments of levity, the darkness far outweighs the light.

And as we could tell by the opening night audience, there's only so much heaviness people want and can take!

The main problem with the show is the book, by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, and the decision to make the socio-political story the main one, while the more compelling love story and the father/son story played second fiddle.

If people were more invested in the characters and more attention paid to them and less to the more global "economic drama" in the show, The Last Ship would have been far more compelling!

The female lead, played by Rachel Tucker, is SEN-SA-TIONAL! She's almost too good! She makes her male counterpart pale in comparison.

Choreographer Steven Hoggett did a super job of injecting the show with some much needed joie de vivre, but those moments were few and far between.

We appreciate all that The Last Ship attempted to do. We just wish it would have done it all more effectively!

The pressure is on!

Luckily all the stars that have been tapped to participate in The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway are all pros!

Nina Dobrev, Melanie Griffith, Amanda Seyfried, Uzo Aduba, Peter Dinklage, and Pablo Schreiber are just a few stars who will be participating in the 14th annual benefit, The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway.

The title of the benefit is essentially what it is. Over a dozen of chosen actors, six writers, and six directors are challenged to come up with six original short plays over the course of 24 hours — which is a VERY short time!

To get a feeling of how much time these artists have, we'll break it down for you.
