Chess the Musical


Jan 11, 2020 to Jan 19, 2020
08:00 PM until 10:30 PM

This event occurs daily, every 1 day(s).


Featuring the music of ABBA members Andersson and Ulvaeus, as well as lyrics by musical theatre icon, Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Aida), this gripping musical was inspired by political and international spectacle of the 1972 World Chess Championship between American Bobby Fischer and Russian Boris Spassky. Set in the 1980’s at the height of the Cold War, Chess illustrates how something as trivial as a game of chess can mean so much more when fueled by the threats and propaganda of nations.
