The Last Ship is set to sail off into the distance. The producers behind the Sting-penned musical said the Broadway production will close on Jan. 24, The New York Times reported.
The news of the closure comes despite Sting joining the cast last month in a late effort to boost flagging ticket sales and drum up much needed publicity. The show cost $15 million to produce, with weekly running costs of $625,000 or more, and producers in the end couldn't make the numbers work.
