CHESS The Musical

Let the games begin.

It’s USA vs USSR! Two of the world’s greatest chess masters, an American and a Russian, battle it out at the world championships – but their greatest contest is for the love of one woman.

From Bangkok to Budapest, the romantic love triangle is caught between two world powers, as the rivals go head-to-head in the game of their lives.

With music by ABBA legends Björn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson and lyrics by Sir Tim Rice, the dazzling contemporary pop rock score became a worldwide smash, featuring the hit singles One Night in Bangkok, Anthem and I Know Him So Well.

Presented by Encore Theatre Company, Chess The Musical comes to the Princess Theatre in March 2024 for a strictly limited season.
