Romeo and Juliet

  • Theater / Dance

In the year marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, Takahiro Fujita takes on “Romeo and Juliet”

Takahiro Fujita attracted further attention in 2014 with his Playhouse performance “Memory of the Little Finger”, and in 2015 he cemented his title as the leading young director of Japanese theater’s next generation with “cocoon” and “Throw Away Your Books, Rally in the Streets”. In 2016, four hundred years after Shakespeare’s death, Fujita is taking on a classic for the first time, reviving this well-known theatrical masterpiece for the present day with a completely new and original approach.
Along with regular performers in Fujita’s work like Izumi Aoyagi, Yuriko Kawasaki and Satoko Yoshida, twelve actresses selected by audition will make this version a virtually all-female one. The hotly-anticipated production also notably features costumes designed by Yoko Omori, the famous stylist from quintessential 1980s magazine, the legendary “Olive”.
