CHESS auditions are coming up 8/17-8/19. For those who don't know the show, it's a rock opera by Tim Rice (Jesus Christ Superstar, Evita, Lion King, Aida) and the guys from ABBA (Mama Mia.) It takes place at a world championship chess match between the American world champion and a Russian challenger at the end of the Cold War. There's politics, a love triangle, and some absolutely incredible music with beautiful harmonies. Two famous songs from the show are One Night in Bangkok and I Know Him So Well (awesomely covered by Whitney Houston.) You can watch a concert version on Youtube from 2009 that starred Idina Menzel, Josh Groban and Adam Pascal. This is one of my all time favorite shows and I am so excited we are doing it! It's going to be an amazing experience and hopefully a stunning production. Audition app at flct.org.
