Sting and his 'The Last Ship' star go home

bigstory.ap.org — NEW YORK (AP) - The actors in Sting's musical "The Last Ship" have plenty of pressure these days. The show is making its Broadway debut. There are last-minute changes. And Sting is pacing in the darkness. "I'm at the back there every night, mouthing every syllable, which is an extra burden the poor things have," says the Grammy Award-winner at the Neil Simon Theatre.

hosted.ap.org — NEW YORK (AP) -- A day after seeing himself onstage, Davy Rothbart was still a little dazed. The celebratory drinks afterward sure didn't hurt, but those weren't what kept him floored.
