The Last Ship didn't last long

So Sting's musical The Last Ship is to close on Broadway on 24th January after just three months - and that's despite record attendances and ticket sales for Broadway theatres in general, and Sting's decision to replace leading man Jimmy Naill with himself. Surely this is too premature - he should have tried Kevin Whately, Ant, Dec, Gazza and Cheryl Fernandez-Versini in the role first?

The article also contains the revelation that Julian Fellowes and Andrew Lloyd Webber are collaborating on a musical version of School Of Rock. Can't wait.
