Quotes

Walter de Courcy: Anatoly's return to the Soviet Union is a very decent gesture It's virtually assured us some very important collateral including your father. He must have done it for you, he wouldn't have done it for me. We'll get your father out if he's still alive.
Florence Vassy: What did you say?
Walter de Courcy: Well, we can't be sure he is alive. But, then, you couldn't be sure he was dead. No change there, ah? You'll be back next year. It's only a game.
Florence Vassy: No! I've spent my whole life playing games.

Rice's gambit pays off.

Watching Chess with no idea what to expect, I was completely blown away by this DVD.

First of all, despite many negative comments, Idina Menzel makes a very convincing Florence, and while she does falter on some of the high notes, her performance more than makes up for it. Josh Groban brings a quiet intensity to Anatoly and manages to wow audiences in his big numbers, particularly the act-ending 'Anthem' while Adam Pascal, playing his opposite number, is brilliantly boorish, but manages equally to play Freddie's change of heart and inner monologues (Pity the Child) convincingly.

The supporting cast all compliment the key players well, my particular favourite being David Bedella as the sinister, yet charismatic Molokov. The staging and storyline show just why Chess was never a success on the West End or Broadway, but as a recording, it is sure to endure along with the greats.
