Chess: In Concert 2012 (A Benefit for The Actors Fund) A One-Night-Only Concert to benefit The Actors Fund of America

Tony Award-nominee Robert Cuccioli (Jekyll & Hyde, Les Miserables), Helen Hayes Award-winner Natascia Diaz (Capeman, La Mancha, Tick, Tick...Boom), and Drew Sarich (Lestat, Les Miserables, Rocky) star in a special "In Concept" benefit concert of Chess: The Musical by Benny Andersson, Tim Rice, and Bjorn Ulvaeus to aid The Actors Fund of America. Produced, directed, and arranged by international director/composer Christopher Martin (founding artistic director, Classic Stage Company) and with musical direction by Valerie Sciarra, this through-sung concert version will focus on the music, lyrics, and characters, emulating the original 1984 concept album and incorporating virtually all of the original London score.

Pretty cool, eh?

Not many musicals with Broadway runs under two months get starry concert performances. But then, Benny Andersson, Tim Rice and Björn Ulvaeus' Chess is no ordinary musical.
