Madison Theatre at Molloy College presents Chess & Other Pieces, a one-night-only event featuring the music of Chess and other popular Broadway musicals of the 1980s, on Saturday, March 10, at 7:30 p.m.
With music by Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus of ABBA and lyrics by Tim Rice, Chess was a significant and powerful piece of music theater at the time because of its portrayal of the Cold War.
In addition, the event will feature music from Barnum, Baby, Big River, City of Angels, Merrily We Roll Along and Into the Woods, another musical phenomenon, accompanied by South Shore Symphony, a 65-piece orchestra headed by Broadway-credited conductor Aaron Gandy.
Anne Runolfsson (Phantom of the Opera, Victor/Victoria), Scott Logsdon (Les Miserables), Janet Metz (Falsettoland, Fiddler on the Roof), Jake Boyd (Rock of Ages, Barrow Street Sweeney Todd), Chris White and students from the prestigious Molloy/Cap21 College Program will sing.
