With music by ABBA’s Benny Andersson & Bjorn Ulvaeus and lyrics by Tim Rice (Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) CHESS tells a story of love and political intrigue, in which superpowers attempt to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends. From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians and spies become pawns of the game and make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock opera featuring such stellar songs as "I Know Him So Well," "One Night in Bangkok," "Anthem," "Someone Else’s Story," and "Pity The Child."
