Chess: The Musical

March 10th – 12th & March 17th – 19th 2022 @ 7:30PM | Sunday March 20th @ 6:00Pm

The most popular fictional portrayal of chess ever created is most likely Chess, a musical written by Benny Andersson, Bjorn Ulvaeus, and Tim Rice. Chess is the story of a love triangle between two grandmasters–one American, one Russian—and a woman serves as a manager to one of the players but falls in love with the other. The musical was inspired by some of the political machinations surrounding the 1972 Fischer-Spassky World Championship match.

Before the musical was ever performed, a concept album was released that contained only a vague description of the plot. The album was a worldwide hit, reaching the top 50 in several countries, including the top 10 statuses in the United Kingdom, West Germany, and South Africa. It was even the number one album in Sweden for seven weeks, thanks in large part due to ABBA’s contributions to the musical score. The biggest hit of all from the album was One Night in Bangkok, which reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. Other songs that gained significant popularity included “I Know Him So Well” (a #1 hit in the UK), “Nobody’s Side,” “The Arbiter,” and “Pity the Child.”
