Chess is a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music  by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, formerly of ABBA. 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.

A single from the album, “One Night In Bangkok”, performed by Murray Head with Anders Glenmark became a worldwide smash and reached No.3 on Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US. 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.

EDGAR & EMILY

By Joseph McDonough

Oct. 12 – Nov. 4, 2018

Thu. – Sat. 8pm, Sun. 4pm

In January 1864, reclusive poet Emily Dickinson receives a surprise guest: Edgar Allan Poe. Although Poe died 15 years prior, he arrives quite alive and just as energized by death as ever before—one could say death kindly stopped for Emily, after all. Though the evening pits the pendulum of both poets’ personalities against the other in this comic fantasia, Emily and Edgar find they have a lot in common despite their differences. The heart tells the tale, you know.
