2nd Star Productions in Bowie, MD presents... CHESS January 25 - February 16, 2019
Direction by Mickey Lund Music Direction by Doug Dawson and Jess Deskin Choreography by Karen Lacy
This highly acclaimed musical develops the ancient and distinguished game of chess into a metaphor for romantic rivalries and East-West political intrigue. The principal pawns form a love triangle: the loutish American Grandmaster, the earnest Russian champion and the Hungarian-American female chess second, who arrives at the international championships with the American but falls for the Russian. From Tyrol to Thailand the players, lovers, politicians, CIA and KGB make their moves to the pulse of this monumental rock score.
2nd Star Productions will be presenting the musical at the Bowie Playhouse at Whitemarsh Park from January 25 through February 16, 2019. Performances will be as follows: Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm, Sundays at 3 pm, with the closing performance on Saturday, February 24th at 3 pm.
