Before Mamma Mia!, members of ABBA teamed up with Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, The Lion King, Evita) to create a dynamic drama centered on the World Chess Championship, mirroring the 1980s Cold War tensions between the U.S. and the Soviet Union.


The dazzling and beautiful pop rock score, including hit single “One Night in Bangkok,” became a worldwide smash.


Chess makes its move to St. Louis – host of the first World Chess Championship – and onto the Muny stage for the first time, as the game’s long history continues to rise in popularity.


In partnership with the Saint Louis Chess Club and World Chess Hall of Fame, The Muny will show Chess from July 5 to 11.
