A musical comedy about the arrival of rock and roll in an imaginary town in                 Britain in the early 1960s.

  The collaborators on CHESS are giants of rock music and rock musicals, & here they have created a complex rock opera that has played to full houses and standing ovations around the world. In this musical, the ancient game becomes a metaphor for romantic rivalries, competitive gamesmanship, super-power politics & International intrigues. The pawns in this drama form a love triangle; the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion & a Hungarian born English woman who arrives at the international chess match in Merano,Italy, with the American, but falls for the Russian. From Merano to Bangkok, the players, lovers, politicians and spies manipulate & are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score that includes "One Night in Bangkok" & " I Know him so well", not to mention "Anthem" & "Nobody's Side".
