Currently nominated for Best Original Score Written For The Theatre, rock legend Sting appeared at the 2015 Tony Nominees reception held at the Paramount Hotel in New York, unusually sporting a beard. The singer composed the score for the nautical England set play 'The Last Ship'.
Sting's musical will come to an end at the end of January.
Sting's Broadway musical The Last Ship, about unemployed builders who takeover a factory to build a new vessel, is to close after just three months. After mixed reviews, Sting himself took over the lead role in a bid to revive the ailing ticket sales.
Sting's apperance in The Last Ship couldn't help revive the flagging musical
However, despite his appearance having a "galvanizing impact", producers felt attendances would drop again once he left. The musical is set to close on January 24.

Sting will replace his good friend Jimmy Nail in the Broadway show, 'The Last Ship'.
Sting has joined the cast of flagging Broadway musical The Last Ship in a bid to save the $15 million production. The Police rock star will appear in the show - the first he has written - about his ship-building hometown in northeast England, appearing in eight shows a week until January 10.
Sting will play the lead in his own Broadway musical, The Last Ship
The show officially opened in late October to mixed reviews from critics, though Sting's original songs won praise. However, the production has lost roughly $75,000 a week since previews began in September, according to the New York Times.

The actor is among five honourees that will be recognised at the annual Kennedy Center Honors
Tom Hanks is a mammoth actor who has delighted fans with extraordinary performances for just short of 40 years. He started his career by providing us with some delightfully 80s classics in the era of big hair and bright colours with greats such as Splash, Big and Turner & Hooch. In the 90s he gave us a cacophony of feel-good flicks including Sleepless in Seattle, Forrest Gump and the first of one of the most successful trilogies of all time, Toy Story.
Tom Hanks' illustrious career is being recognised at the Kennedy Center Honors
In the noughties Hanks got his serious side out and audiences were treated to Road to Perdition, The Da Vinci Code and its sequel Angels and Demons. Sheriff Woody came out in style twice more for Toy Story 2 and 3 and Hanks has been at the helm of some of the best films of the past few years as a main star in Captain Phillips and Saving Mr Banks.

The British rocker wants his kids to know the meaning of money and achievement.
Sting doesn't want his children to inherit his £180m fortune so that they can earn their own way in the world. The British rocker revealed his rather divisive plans in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, making it clear that his six children haven't had and won't have an easy ride and will have to stand on their own two feet.
The 62 year-old former Police star, who is one of Britain's wealthiest musicians, has revealed that he places an emphasis on encouraging his children "to succeed on their own merit" which they are happy to do. What's more, Sting claims that his fortune is depleting because of hefty outgoings.
He said: "I told them there won't be much money left because we are spending it. We have a lot of commitments. What comes in we spend, and there isn't much left. I certainly don't want to leave them trust funds that are albatrosses round their necks. They have to work. All my kids know that and they rarely ask me for anything, which I really respect and appreciate."
