The musical team of Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson (Mamma Mia!)  and lyricist Tim Rice (The Lion King, Jesus Christ Superstar) team up to bring you Chess, written by Richard Nelson and Directed by Eric Schaeffer. Chessrevolves around two of the worlds greatest chess players, one America and one Russian, at the tail-end of the Cold war. Beyond their competition to become the best player in the world is another competition for the love of the same woman. This Tony-nominated rock-musical is a must see this summer.
