Sunday, August 06
David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre
The collaborators on Chess are giants of rock music, and they have created a complex rock opera that played to full Broadway houses and standing ovations. Here, the ancient board game 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. From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score.
