CHESSChess
Music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus
Lyrics by Tim Rice
Directed by Tim Dang
Musical Direction by Marc Macalintal
Choreography by Marc Oka

May 09 - June 09, 2013

From the lyricist of Jesus Christ Superstar and the composers of Mamma Mia!, the story involves a romantic triangle between two top chess players - an American and a Russian - and a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other. All of this takes place within the context of the Cold War, as both countries vie for international chess victories for propaganda purposes.

"CHESS (UK Version)" is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc.

Featuring: Joan Almedilla, Elijah Rock, Victor E. Chan, Carey Rebecca Brown, Ray A. Rochelle, Michael Alexander Henry, and Ryan Castellino with Cesar Cipriano, Stephanie Mieko Cohen, Jasmine Ejan, Shay Louise, D.T. Matias, Maegan McConnell, Alex Sanchez, and Justin Vasquez.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
