SOUTH GATE STAGE




Most musicals have happy endings and likable characters, but not CHESS, a show that is about deception leading to an endgame with the appropriate negative song, Nobody’s On Nobody’s Side.

ABBA's musical Mama Mia, was a mega-hit, but although their music for CHESS is a great score it was a Broadway flop.  One problem was the script, and many revivals changed the musical in an effort to make CHESS work.  South Gate Stage takes on the challenge of reviving this intriguing but difficult musical.
