During Golden Week, I had an opportunity to go see a Takarazuka show. I had heard that the shows were a lot of fun, so I thought that I would take the opportunity to see a show while I was here. It’s also interesting to note that all of the roles are played by women. These shows feel like something you would watch on Broadway. Takurazuka performs various kinds of shows, from Western plays to traditional Japanese drama.
The show that was playing was called “Me and My Girl.” The play itself was fun, and the actors were amazing. You an tell that the Takarazuka actors put a lot of work into the play. It was nice to see how dedicated the actors were to putting on an amazing show.
After the play had finished, the actors performed many, if not all, of the musical numbers again. This time, however, the outfits were more extravagant. The costumes were no less beautiful than the costumes they wore during the show, but it was a nice way to end the show. If I ever got the chance, I would definitely see another Takurazuka show.
