Chess

Master Thor took me to see the musical Chess at the Signature Theater in Arlington, Virginia. I loved it, though it's a troubled show. Why does the Hollywood agent in Act I turn into a secret agent in Act II? How many mysterious envelopes are there? And are there any two characters who aren't in love with each other (not counting the American chess player who is in love with himself). Still, I've waited twenty-five years to see this musical on stage, and I loved every minute of it. Here are some samples of the eighties-retro goodness:
