THE STORY OF CHESS
"One of the best rock scores ever produced for the theatre. . .
A difficult, demanding and rewarding show, one that pushes
the boundaries of the form" - William A. Henry III, Time
For those who know Chess only from a recording, this site will give you
an idea of the staged productions; for the aficianado, the entire spectrum
of worldwide variations.

Chess is a love story set amid a world champion chess match, the
tensions of the Cold War, and a media circus. When the Berlin Wall fell,
a radically altered version of the show was presented on Broadway and
failed. Come, explore the world of Chess, the musical everybody thought
they could fix . . . but was there anything wrong with it to begin with?
