Pittsburgh Musical Theater, a nonprofit regional theater company and actor-training school, has staged Broadway musicals and other tuneful productions since 1990. Chess, a rock opera penned by the composers of the Broadway smash Mamma Mia!, whisks viewers to a Cold War-era chess tournament where an American and a Russian square off using knights, rooks, and impromptu bouts of thumb wrestling. A love triangle emerges as the rivals try to prove their countries’ gaming superiority, yielding dramatic songs such as “One Night in Bangkok.” Like a musket loaded with Sweetheart candies, the chess matches symbolize the power struggles of war and romance alike. Throughout the performance, the combined forces of the CAPA Symphony and Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra swathe ears in the riveting soundtrack.

A former vaudeville house filled with nearly 100 years of history, Byham Theater has hosted legendary performers such as Ethel Barrymore and Helen Hayes. As visitors enter the venue to marvel at stained-glass windows and mosaic-tile floors, copper cherubs greet them with the aesthetics and rap lyrics of a bygone era.
