Strategy, Love & Politics: UCI Drama Presents a Concert Staging of CHESS

STRATEGY, LOVE & POLITICS: UCI DRAMA PRESENTS A CONCERT STAGING OF CHESS

IRVINE, Calif. (October 16, 2017) – UC Irvine’s Claire Trevor School of the Arts Department of Drama opens its 2017 – 18 season with a concert staging of the musical Chess, a complex exploration of strategy and love set at the intersection of US – Russia political relations. With music by ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus and lyrics by Tim Rice, Chess premiered in 1986 telling the story of a match between an American Grandmaster (loosely based on the life of Bobby Fischer) and his Soviet rival, and was generally seen as a metaphor for the Cold War politics of the day. This is the first show in a season themed “The Business of Politics/The Politics of Business,” which takes a look at the shady underbelly of capitalism.
