The Last Ship’s Rachel Tucker
It's G&F's Summer Culture Issue—and we're going crazy for all things musical theater. While we love the classics—our latest fashion editorial was a tribute to the jazz legend Bob Fosse—we've got our eyes on the horizon as well. And pulling in at full steam is The Last Ship. With music by Sting, the brand new musical previewing in Chicago before it's Broadway debut is a story of an English seafaring town on a quest to preserve their daily grind: the shipyard. We go backstage of the new project to talk with one of the show's stars, Rachel Tucker. Hailing from Belfast, Ireland, this stunning talent made a name for herself early on in her career on a BBC talent show-themed TV series. From there, she graced the West End stages in London and, after the Chicago engagement, she's just moments away from making her Broadway debut in the role of Meg in the critically acclaimed new work.
