IN NO WAY, SHAPE OR FORM CLOSE TO THE ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK OR CAST....VERY DISSAPOINTING.
I just recently viewed the 2008 concert version of "Chess" which originated in the 1980's. As a matter of fact,Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
I not only prize the original soundtrack, but saw the live show in London twice during the late 80's.
How dissapointed I was with the 2008 concert version for a number of reasons, but primarily three (3).
1. The female cast simply did not compare to the original songs
2. Some of the original songs (i.e. Pity the Child) were taken out - and why??? ("Model of Decorum...."; "Pity the Child"; "Where I Want to Be"....etc.
3. The songs that were added were not only uninspiring, but replaced the original songs which were taken out
Sorry, but I was anything but impressed....and with so much material to work with, was this the best that could be done? Yikes - this was a true, true letdown.
