The Front Row

The Front Row – Masquerade Theatre

Lead members of the cast of the Masquerade Theatre production of the musical Chess gather in KUHF’s Geary Performance Studio for a preview of the show’s original score by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus – the song-writing members of ABBA. Their show was inspired by the Cold-War-Era “Match of the Century” between American chess champion, Bobby Fischer, and the Russian grand master, Boris Spassky and the intense, politically-charged chess rivalry that raged between the two countries for some years afterwards…

The new production opens in the Hobby Center this weekend and KUHF’s Bob Stevenson hosts the session.
