The very successful Netflix show “The Queen’s Gambit” just may become a musical.
The show had over 62 million viewers in the first month of release alone!
An article on variety.com stated, ““The Queen’s Gambit” centers on Beth Harmon, an orphan who discovers she has a preternatural ability to move the pieces around a chess board and dominate the competition. The novel, published in 1983, follows her journey from Kentucky to Paris to Moscow, while she battles addiction and the prejudices of a male-centered world. Now, that journey will involve music, dance and singing, in addition to pawns and rooks.”
Now I guess this means I need to watch the show!
