An ill-mannered American Grandmaster and an intense Russian, in a world chess championship, and the Hungarian-American woman who manages one and falls in love with the other; all in the context of a Cold War struggle between the United States and the Soviet Union.
Chess is a musical with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, formerly of ABBA.
