The overlooked musical
Patience K. Willey | Vermont | 03/15/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a longtime fan of "Chess", I decided it was time to replace my old copy of the soundtrack which was probably on tape. This show is the most overlooked musical of all time in my opinion. It has some of the most beautiful music of any show I have ever seen. I was hooked when I saw it at North Shore Music Theatre in Beverly, MA starring Jodi Benson (Little Mermaid; Polly in Crazy for You, etc.) playing Florence, earlier in her career. Soaring melodies, edgy musical proclamations and much more, should have given this show a place on the all time great Broadway Show list. About all most people remember about this show is that "One Night in Bankok" was on the pop charts for awhile. Maybe it was too topical: Cold War, Russia...but those of us who lived through those times can appreciate the significance of "Chess". What more can I say. Child of the 40's and 50's or not, who can resist the magic of a score composed by the guys from "Abba"?"
One of the best

"Chess has to be one of the best musical productions ever. It has unique story to tell and the lyrics and the music are fantastic."
