The MIT Gilbert and Sullivan Players are proud to present Chess, the highly acclaimed musical from the minds of Tim Rice and ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus .
At the height of the Cold War, an American and Russian grandmaster face off in a battle for international chess supremacy. When the Russian falls in love with the American’s chess second, intense rivalry and East-West political intrigue begin to unfold. From Tyrol to Thailand, the players, lovers, politicians, and spies make their moves to the pulse of an incredible rock score. Featuring hits such as “One Night in Bangkok”, “I Know Him So Well”, and “Anthem”, Chess promises to be a not to be missed theatrical experience.
