So, continuing the series of revisions I've been working on, here’s my take on the Broadway script. As with the last London revision, the goal here was to create a functional version of the Broadway script while still retaining the base core and structure of the original show.
This has been in the drafting process for a very long while, and at long last I think it’s in a fairly presentable state. I’m actually rather happy with how parts of this turned out- there are a couple scenes in Act II that I think are the best work I’ve done for this project- and of the scripts I’ve been working on thus far, this comes closest to what my ideal Chess would be like.
You can download the revised script here. As last time, appendices on alternate/changed lyrics, and alternate scenes and songs that didn’t make the final cut are included in the back.
Hope you all enjoy!
