why watch chess - the musical in concert
Set in the late 1970s/early 1980s at the height of the Cold War, the musical drama features American and Soviet chess masters battling for the world title in Bangkok. Fuel is added to the fire as the respective governments twist and turn the match for politically driven purposes. When an intriguing Hungarian referee enters the fray, she only becomes another player in an emotional game. Used as pawns by their governments and caught in the middle of two world powers, will the contest destroy the players' lives?
The iconic musical is coming back to West End for the first time since 2018, packing a powerful punch of lyrics by Sir Tim Rice and music by the ABBA greats Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus. Including classic hits like 'I Know Him So Well' and 'Heaven Help My Heart', the musical features a fantastic soundtrack that made Top Ten in the UK, West Germany, Sweden, and South Africa. The cast of this revival is accompanied by the 50-piece London Musical Theatre Orchestra. Book your tickets now to experience a riveting story of love and political intrigue.
