Chess – Concert Series

Book by Richard Nelson. Lyrics by Tim Rice. Music by Björn Ulvaeus & Benny Andersson of ABBA.

Before Mamma Mia! came along, the two composers of the pop group ABBA fashioned this daring new musical, set during the heart of the Cold War, about an international chess match between the Russian champion and a brash American challenger. Featuring the Top 40 hit “One Night in Bangkok,” this show arrived on Broadway with great fanfare and acclaim, but is only seldom performed. Here’s  your chance to see the show performed in full, as a concert, with a live orchestra and cast.
