Bravo Media's Emmy Award-winning ''Inside the Actors Studio,'' hosted by James Lipton, welcomes world-renowned musician, actor, author and composer Sting to the stage on Thursday, October 23rd at 8pm ET/PT. Lipton sits down with the singer-songwriter to discuss everything from his time with The Police to his forthcoming Broadway musical ''The Last Ship,'' which opens on October 26 at the Neil Simon Theatre.

''In the twenty-one years of Inside the Actors Studio, there has never been an episode like Sting's,'' says Lipton. ''Performing numerous songs and revealing himself with unprecedented candor, irresistible charm and undisguised emotion, he has brought us a Sting that his legion of followers has never seen before. On the eve of the opening of ''The Last Ship,'' the magic begins on our stage.''

From the meaning behind the nickname ''Sting'' to the truth behind his infamous quote on tantric sex, Lipton provides an in-depth retrospective of the musician's fascinating career. The episode also includes additional interviews with Rachel Tucker, Michael Esper and Jimmy Nail of ''The Last Ship,'' which marks Sting’s debut as a Broadway composer and is inspired by his memories of the shipbuilding community of Wasllsend, England where he was born and raised. Additionally, viewers will enjoy Sting perform various songs spanning across his four-decade-long career.

Grammy Award-winning singer-songwriter Sting and director Joe Mantello will be part of an Oct. 20 TimesTalk to discuss the new Broadway musical The Last Ship, which opens on Broadway Oct. 26 at the Neil Simon Theatre. Directed by Tony winner Mantello (Casa Valentina, Wicked), The Last Ship arrived on Broadway in September following a Chicago world-premiere engagement earlier this summer. New York Times chief pop music critic Jon Pareles will lead the sold-out 6:30 PM discussion between the two collaborators, which will also be live streamed at

Award-winning singer-songwriter Sting chats with about overcoming years of writer's block with the new autobiographical musical The Last Ship. Sting looks tired. It's understandable, considering it's the hour before the final run-through of the first Broadway musical he's written (and, in true theatre tradition, re-written). The auditorium of the Neil Simon Theatre is crowded with tables and cables, the room dominated by dozens of tech people the audience never sees. It's refreshing that a 16-time Grammy winning superstar looks like a sleep-deprived theatre person, rather than one of those aging rockers who now resemble their wax figures at Madame Tussaud's. "It's an out-of-body experience," Sting says, rubbing his eyes. "You relinquish a lot of control, but all of these people bring something to the process I can't."
