I watched Chess in Concert on my local public TV station this week and loved the presentation. This is now the "Official" version of Chess in Tim Rice's (they Lyricist) view. They have taken the London show and modified it to include some music from the Broadway version (most significantly "Someone Else's Story). It is an excellent DVD and production. It was awesome to have the full orchestra and choir for this production. The bad, well first Best Buy notes there are 2 discs. However there is only the one. Also not good was the acting by Josh Groban. He's a great singer, but he's not a very good actor, and the role of Anatoly (the Russian for those only familiar with the concept album) is very tough.
If you love Chess you should get this production!
I would recommend this to a friend
