From one match to another, the players, lovers, politicians, and spies manipulate and are manipulated to the pulse of a monumental rock score by ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Andersson, with book by Richard Nelson and lyrics by Tim Rice."

White Plains Performing Arts Center is located on the third level of City Center mall off Mamaroneck Avenue in downtown White Plains. Tickets cost $35 (adults) and $25 (22 & younger); visit or call (914) 328-1600.
