Well written and performed
A rivet-ing review to the hull of a beautiful story.
This is a fabulous production. Sting not only elevated his talent but the music and arrangements are simply genius.
Must watch and listen!
An riveting performance...
Without doubt, this performance is truly a masterpiece and seems to be a culmination of Sting’s life’s work. His mastery and combination of prose, poetry, storytelling, music, amusing and solemn historical experiences from that time period are welded into an ethereal musical experience. Sting’s intellectual giftedness is clearly evident as he’s able to use a lifetime of experiences to create a performance of this caliber. From start to finish I had an overwhelming experience that rocked my soul. If you are a Sting fan, board this ship, experience the characters, stories and playful dance on the stage. Secure your soul to the bulkhead before you watch this. You’ll be both entertained and stunned. It just might make you put your life on hold for a few minutes and contemplate what’s really important in life in the 21st century. Sting, you’ve not only made it into the Queen Mother’s car, you’ve touched many people’s lives through your art, music, talent and vision. Thank you for being you!
