MAN VS. MACHINE
Could the world’s greatest super-computer outsmart the world’s greatest chess player? That was the question when IBM’s Deep Blue chess machine (which could analyze 200 million positions per second) took on the world’s youngest chess champ, Garry Kasparov, in 1997. British playwright Matt Charman’s The Machine, staged by Donmar Warehouse artistic director Josie Rourke, brings you up close to this famous battle. Want to learn more? Mark your calendars for an artist talk at 5 on September 7.
Mondays-Sundays, 8 p.m. Starts: Sept. 4. Continues through Oct. 1, 2013
