Robert J. D'Amato as Botvinnik, Daniel Hendricks Simon as Tal.

The Fringe Festival art festival in New York City features a play, The French Defense , by Dimiti Raitzin about the 1960 Botvinnik-Tal match. Check out Jennifer's thoughts on the play on her blog. If you're a New Yorker, you can still catch the final Fringe showing on Aug.25. For details, check the French Defense website.
