The Last Ship will finish its pre-Broadway run in Chicago today as the cast and crew prepare to sail over to New York. The entire creative team, including Sting, John Logan, Joe Mantello and Steven Hoggett, and cast have been a pleasure to host. We have loved having them here in Chicago and wish them all the best on Broadway! We’ve put together some of their fun moments around town and on opening night as a look back upon a fantastic experience in Chicago.
