Landmark musical Chess returns to the West End for its first major revival in over 30 years. For 5 weeks Only!! High demand for tickets due to short run.
Written in 1984 by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King, Evita), Chess tells a story of love and political intrigue set against the background of the Cold War, in which superpowers attempt to manipulate an international chess championship for political ends.
Two of the world’s greatest chess masters, one American and one Russian, risk becoming the pawns of their governments as their battle for the world title gets underway. Simultaneously, their lives are thrown into further confusion by a Hungarian refugee, a remarkable woman who becomes the centre of their emotional triangle.
Directed by Laurence Connor, whose recent credits include School of Rock, Les Miserables and Miss Saigon, this new production includes the songs Anthem, Someone Else’s Story, Heaven Help My Heart, Pity The Child, and international hit singles I Know Him So Well and One Night In Bangkok.
