PBS will air the Royal Albert Hall concert presentation of the musical Chess on Wednesday, June 17. A special free screening of the telecast will be held that night at the Laurie Beechman Theatre at the West Bank Cafe.

The show, which is written by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, with book and lyrics by Tim Rice, involves a romantic triangle between two players in a World Chess Championship, and the woman who manages one and falls in love with the other.

The concert, which occurred in May 2008, stars Idina Menzel, Josh Groban, Kerry Ellis, Adam Pascal, David Bedella, Marti Pellow, and Clarke Peters. Both a CD and a DVD of the concert are scheduled to be released in June as well.

For more information about the Beechman Theatre screening, call 212-695-6909.
