Chess

Friday, June 28, 2019, 8:00 PM


Music by Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus
Lyrics by Tim Rice & Björn Ulvaeus
Directed by Shon M. Stacy
In this musical, the ancient game of Chess becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics, and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion, and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American, but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes "One Night in Bangkok" and "Heaven Help My Heart."
Presented through arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.
