“Nobody’s Side” – Chess
Music: Benny Andersson & Björn Ulvaeus Lyrics: Tim Rice
When World War II began, Sweden professed it was on nobody’s side when it declared neutrality on this day in 1939. In this musical about an international chess tournament set against the backdrop of the Cold War, Florence realizes she might be on nobody’s side in this electrifying number. With music by the gentlemen behind Swedish pop sensation ABBA, this is one game where nobody will lose no matter whose side they’re on.
