    16th edition of Nakamura Kanzabur˘'s summer program at the Kabukiza (the first under his new name), the famous Hachigatsu N˘ry˘ Kabuki (literally "the August cool-breeze Kabuki"). Our recommendations are the third program, the very funny drama "H˘kaib˘" and "Ise Ondo Koi no Netaba" (a great summer play with lots of love and blood).
