This highly acclaimed, international blockbuster musical weaves the ancient game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue. Music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus of the pop group ABBA, lyrics by Ulvaeus and Tim Rice, and book by Rice, the story involves a politically driven chess tournament between two grandmasters, one American and the other Russian. In danger of becoming pawns in a politically charged competition, their lives are thrown into further confusion by a Hungarian refugee, a remarkable woman who becomes the center of their emotional triangle. Thrilling and timely, Chess includes several international hits, including “One Night in Bangkok” and “I Know Him So Well.”
