A concert version of Benny Andersson, Bjorn
Ulvaeus and Tim Rice’s cult musical Chess, featuring the talents of Wicked’s Idina Menzel, Rent’s Adam Pascal, and the internationally renowned vocalist Josh Groban will be broadcast on PBS on Wednesday, June 17 at 9 PM (ET) as a part of their Great Performances series.
Adam Pascal of Rent fame is looking at pulling together a team of big hitters to help adapt the Queensrÿche album Operation: Mindcrime into a Broadway musical. “Throughout the years, I’ve envisioned how this can be turned into a real musical, a book musical,” said Pascal. The concept album is not nearly as specific as [The Who's] ‘Tommy.’ It’s told in very broad strokes, so that it allows me a tremendous amount of freedom to create a story.” Never heard of the album (honestly, we hadn’t) – check it out on iTunes - it’s pretty fantastic and we can totally see Pascal at the helm of a stage version!
