“One of the best rock scores ever produced in the theater!” – Time Magazine
From the Composers of Mamma Mia! and the Lyricist of Evita, The Lion King and Jesus Christ Superstar, Queen City Theatre Company presents the London revival of the musical CHESS!
Originally produced on Broadway in 1988, this Tony®-nominated cult rock musical explores the classic themes of love, loss and betrayal. Featuring the hit single “One Night in Bangkok”, and unforgettable songs like “Anthem,” “I Know Him So Well,” “Nobody’s Side,” and “Pity the Child.”
This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and the Cold War political intrigue. From Murano to Bankok, the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score composed by members of the famous Swedish band ABBA.
