On March 28, 2019, SHN productions presented their upcoming 2019-2020 season series at the Golden Gate Theatre in a noontime press and donor event on the stage of the theatre.
The highlight of the upcoming season is a show called “The Last Ship,” which had a short run on Broadway in 2014. Conceived by and starring the musician/songwriter Sting, the show deals with the shipbuilding industry in Newcastle, England during the 1980s, and is based on Sting’s own memories. It will play San Francisco in February-March, 2020.
Sting was on hand, at the Golden Gate, and performed a half dozen songs from the show, accompanied by a pianist and two actors from The Last Ship. Afterward, members of the press had a chance for brief interviews.
KPFA’s Richard Wolinsky was on hand and was given four minutes with Sting. Not much time, but hopefully next year a full interview will be in the cards.
