WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Chess develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue during the Cold War. From Tyrol to Thailand, the players, lovers, politicians, CIA, and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this rock score including "One Night in Bangkok" and "I Know Him So Well". The show featues music by Benny Andersson & Bjorn Ulvaeus (ABBA; Mamma Mia!), lyrics by Tim Rice (The Lion King; Aida; Jesus Christ Superstar; Evita), and a book by Richard Nelson (James Joyce's The Dead; Two Shakespearean Actors). Mark Harborth directs.
