CHESS: A MUSICAL
"Nobody's on nobody's side."
CHESS, by Tim Rice and two members of ABBA, is a fantastic and intense rock musical set at the International Chess Championship during the Cold War, where the American and Russian finalists compete for more than the win. The American's second, Florence, becomes the object of both men's affections - and competition, intrigue, and desire play with everyone on the board.
With an exciting mixture of 80s rock and traditional Broadway, this production features a 10-piece rock orchestra, an engaging cast, and songs that you'll be humming long after you leave the theater.
At the Adams Pool Theatre, 26 Plympton St., Cambridge.
December 4th-7th at 8 PM and December 6 at 2 PM. Directed by Sean Bala, music directed by Josh Stein, and produced by Jenny Wanger.
