Longmont Theatre presents: CHESS, a complex rock opera, has been seen around the world. This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries that form a love triangle between the loutish American chess star, the earnest Russian champion, and the Hungarian-American female chess second who is torn between them. From Bangkok to Budapest, the players, lovers, politicians, and spies are manipulated by the pulse of this rock music. The musical score is by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus of ABBA fame with lyrics by Tim Rice, who also is the show’s writer. Rice is known for his work with Andrew Lloyd Webber on Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Jesus Christ Superstar and Evita. Audiences will recognize the duet of “I Know Him So Well” and the all-familiar song “One Night in Bangkok.”
