“This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and EastWest political intrigue. The principal pawns form a love triangle: the loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian champion and the Hungarian-American female chess second, who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls for the Russian. From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score.” - Concord Theatricals
