'Chess in Concert' is finally going to air: From square one, we'll be watching!

Posted on

“Oh I’m the arbiter, I know the score! / From square one he’ll be watching all 64!” That’s my favorite line from Chess, which should tell you a few things about me: One, I love wordplay, and two, I like Chess enough to have a favorite line. It’s almost tough to believe I’m convinced I’m going to die alone excited to watch Glee. Anyway, good news, fellow dorkus brethren: The 2008 Chess in Concert, starring Josh Groban and Idina Menzel, is finally coming to PBS! June 17! Check local listings!

If you hate checking local listings, the DVD and CDs come out June 16, and the rest of the cast includes Rent‘s Adam Pascal and Jerry Springer: The Opera‘s David Bedella. Aaagh, it’s like the inside of my iPod is having a party.

PopWatchers, tell me some of you know the words to “Someone Else’s Story.” There are other Chessnuts out there, right?
