Wasn't it Oscar Hammerstein II who remarked, "Nothing says musical theatre quite like a board game and the Cold War?" Maybe not, but this week composer Michael Gordon Shapiro joins us to talk about the musical CHESS! Get your ABBA on and come along for a look at this incredibly electric piece of 1980s musical theatre that shouldn't work, might not work, and yet has a bigger cultural footprint than many shows that do.
