Chess - The musical

This iconic 80s musical develops the ancient game of chess into a metaphor for political and romantic intrigue. The loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian Champion, the Hungarian-American chess second, and the discarded wife all vie for attention and dominance. Think Trump-Putin and their minions in a “reality TV-style” concert setting.
