The next show we saw was the last performance of "The Last Ship" with Sting in one of the leads. He wrote the lyrics and the music, which was good, but I wish there was more of it. Three songs does not a musical make. Wild applause by breathless hanger-ons followed practically every song and there was great swells of it at the end. The actors seemed genuinely moved by it. A special night to be sure but I felt it was a let-down, especially since Sting never took off his shirt. ;-) Kidding! Here's what someone smarter than me said about it, review of The Last Ship.
|The Last Ship's final night on Broadway|
So much fun in New York, it was a shame that the blizzard had to come and ruin it. I missed the dinner for which I had bought my extra special $16 dress (ha, ha) but I will hopefully be able to wear it another time soon. I had to leave on the train home a day early, but I'm glad that I did as I was able to enjoy the snow-days at home with the kids instead of in a bus terminal somewhere! Hope you had a great weekend too.
