A musical with music by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus, formerly of ABBA, and lyrics by Tim Rice. The story involves two chess grandmasters, an American and a Soviet citizen, fighting over a woman who manages one and falls in love with the other—all in the context of a politically-driven, Cold War-era tournament between the two men.
