    Summary

    August, 1972. American ground troops pull out of Vietnam, with thousands more soldiers to follow. A communications hotline reopens between Seoul and Pyongyang for the first time since the Korean War. The Washington Post publishes the first article on what will become known as the Watergate scandal. And Florence Vassy and Freddie Trumper meet at the Marshall Chess Club in New York City.

    As long as he lives, it will never occur to Freddie to feel silly for thinking their meeting as epic and historic as the world-changing forces at work that month. Because they changed the world too, didn’t they? He and Florence.

     

    Vignettes across seven years of an increasingly fraught friendship, all slowly building up to the events of the musical.

    Summary

    Certainly an idyllic scene from some points of view, but "well-produced" tends to be pretty debatable for '80s porn. Definitely not a protagonist short, though.

    Summary

    As tension rises, and everyone becomes disillusioned with each other, new love spurs and impulsive idiotic decisions threaten the lives of the Sergievskys.
    /*Better act 2 of Chess (attempted). Mix of different elements of different productions I personally think work. Such as “Argument” from the concept album, David McLeod making Freddie a little bit more bratty and childish than everyone else, giving everyone a more complete ending. */
