WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The White Plains Performing Arts Center will host a re-imagined update of the musical "Chess" at 8 p.m. Aug. 7 and 8 and 2 p.m. Aug. 9.

"Chess" made its debut in 1986 and this production re-imagines it to reflect the current political climate between the United States and the Middle East rather than the Cold War.

The cast stars Amanda Renee Baker as Florence, John Cormier as the American and Conor McGiffin as the Iranian. "Chess" is directed by Keith Levenson with choreography by Jennifer Jonas and musical direction from Brent McGee.

Tickets are $35 for adults and $25 for patrons 22 and younger. To purchase tickets, visit the box office from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays, call (914) 328-1600 or online at at wppac.com/shows/chess/ . Contact barbara@wppac.com for group sales.
