About musical «CHESS» Broadway Moscow Theatre

About musical

CHESS was written by Oscar and Grammy award-winning playwright Tim Rice ("Jesus Christ Superstar", "The Lion King", "Evita") and members of the legendary ABBA - Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus (MAMMA MIA!). Across all continents the musical has not left the stage in almost 40 years. It combines disco and rap, pop and rock, academic music and chorales: its 35 songs include such worldwide hits as One Night in Bangkok and I Know Him So Well.

A dynamic three-level set weighing more than 50 tons was created especially for the Russian production of CHESS, and the size of LED and projection screens used onstage amounted to 250 square meters.

People attend the musical with their friends and loved ones, because there is much to discuss and even argue about after the show.

The musical has already become a tourist attraction in Moscow: first Red Square, then CHESS!


The exciting process of making a musical, right before your eyes! The funniest attempt to put on the legendary Mamma Mia!, backstage intrigue, over-the-top humor, and parodies of the world's greatest music hits: no one can imagine what will happen when the curtain rises!
A hit musical based on the songs of the band Secret: the adventures of three friends against the backdrop of the 1980s in the city of Leningrad - featuring the crazy fashion, underground rock concerts and swindlers. And, of course, full of the premonition of historical changes and indomitable spirit of freedom.
Light musical with table seating: theatregoers become visitors of the bar, where two young New Yorkers are planning a wedding and are faced with disagreements that may cost them not only the long-awaited celebration, but the very “happily ever after”.
An incredibly funny musical about a blind date – with song from the creators of the hit TV series “Gossip Girl” and Disney composers. The first meeting with all that comes with it: awkward attempts to win over, sudden epiphanies, ugly truths from social networks and, of course, the first kiss.
