Great little article. Saw Sarah Galbraith last night aswell at 'Jingle Belle's' alongside Sierra Bogess at the Leicester Square Theatre last night and she was fantastic. :) Really excited about this!

I went to see something (Not very memorable) at the Union and vowed never to return until they

a) did something about the seating and
B) cleaned the mold growing in the gents toilet.

Chess is one of my fav musicals and I fear for it in this venue to be honest.

Ah yes the state of the union toilets!

Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway.

I've read somewhere that there focus is on dance. I really hope so, because in my humble opinion I have always considered chess a ballet. The story, the score, it's all about moves. Really looking forward to see it in march!

i do agree with you. although the classical aspect of the score is quite difficult to sing. Tim Rice didn't like the cutting of the classical stuff on Broadway. So do you cast triple threat's or have a dancing cast and a singing cast? it's really difficult especially in such a tiny, low budget space like the Union Theatre

Still i can wait to see it

Surely this is a singers' show if there ever was one. That's why it works so well in concert form. Where is the dancing apart from One Night In Bangkok?

The ballet section, where they play chess?

Agreed, Seriously. I see a large dance (or maybe more movement / physical) aspect due to the way characters are maninupluated / played against each other
