Sting and cast members from his musical The Last Ship will sign copies of the show's original Broadway cast recording following the Sunday, December 21 performance at the Neil Simon Theatre. The event takes place at 6pm on the Neil Simon stage.

Fans will be able to purchase the album from 11:30am to noon that day to receive a wristband granting access. Anyone who received a wristband but is not attending the matinee performance may line up outside the theater beginning at 5pm. Those attending the matinee who have purchased an album and received a wristband that morning may line up inside the theater following the show.

The Last Ship began previews September 30 and officially opened October 26, under the direction of Joe Mantello (Wicked, Airline Highway). The production features songs by Sting, a book by John Logan and Brian Yorkey, and choreography by Steven Hoggett.

The principal cast of The Last Ship is led by Michael Esper as Gideon Fletcher, a young man from the English seafaring town of Wallsend, who leaves his life behind to travel the world — only to return a decade later to find out that what he deserted is more than he ever could have imagined. The company also includes Sting (through January 24), Rachel Tucker, Fred Applegate, Aaron Lazar, Sally Ann Triplett, and Collin Kelly-Sordelet.

Featured in the ensemble are Eric Anderson, Ethan Applegate, Craig Bennett, Dawn Cantwell, Jeremy Davis, Bradley Dean, Alyssa DiPalma, Colby Foytik, David Michael Garry, Timothy Gulan, Shawna M. Hamic, Rich Hebert, Leah Hocking, Todd A. Horman, Sarah Hunt, Jamie Jackson, Sean Jenness, Drew McVety, Johnny Newcomb, Matthew Stocke, Cullen Titmus, and Jeremy Woodard.
