Chess, by Tim Rice and ABBA’s Benny Andersson and Björn Ulvaeus, hasn’t had a major West End revival since its Eighties heyday, but it’s back with a bang in a semi-staged production that features aerial silk acrobatics, cheerleading stunts and drunken Cossack dancing. But it’s the work that really shines through: period, yes, and distinctly unwieldy, but oddly timely too – and not just because ABBA are reuniting.
