    Comments

    Ichikawa Ennosuke and his troupe of young and talented actors perform a modern style of theater, which they created a few years ago and called "Super Kabuki" (SűpÔ Kabuki in Chikamatsu Monzaemon's lingo): it's spectacular (lots of chűnori), the costums are gorgeous and ultra-sophisticated, the music is modern, the texts are easy to understand and the plots are as twisted as a good Kabuki classic. Usually a big commercial success!

    Comments

    The great play "Sannin Kichisa" narrates the adventures of three thieves whose common features are the same first name (Kichisa) and a strong sense of honour. Osh˘ Kichisa, an ex-bonze turned thief, is played by Fujikawa Yanosuke. Oj˘ Kichisa, a thief who dresses like a young woman to steal people, is played by Kawarasaki Kunitar˘. Ob˘ Kichisa, an ex-samurai turned thief, is played by Segawa Kikunoj˘.
