Lyrics by Tim Rice
Music by Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson

Here the ancient game of chess becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super power politics and international intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle: the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion and a Hungarian American female assistant who arrives at the international chess match in Bangkok with the American but falls for the Russian. From Bangkok to Budapest the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score by members of ABBA.

Please Note: This show will be general admission seating, limited to 72 seats per performance.
