HIKOBAEロサンゼルス公演が来る3月30日と31日にリトル東京で開催され30日の公演を観ました。今晩7時からと明日4月6日午後3時からニューヨーク公演だそうです。4月12日から福岡、神戸、大阪、東京で公演されるそう。 "HIKOBAE Los Angeles" theatrical play was performed on 3-30 (Sat.) and 3-31 (Sun) at Aratani Japan America Theatre in Little Tokyo, Los Angeles. I saw the 3-30 performance. It will be performed in New York tonight from 7 pm and tomorrow, 4/6/2013 from 3 pm. It will be performed in Fukuoka, Kobe, Osaka, and Tokyo from April 12, 2013.
The play starts out with a peaceful morning of 3-11-2011 at a hospital in Soma City, Fukushima, Japan. An American medical doctor proposed to a Japanese nurse, Saki. But Saki has a boyfriend. His heart was broken.
When the actors speak Japanese, English subtitles appeared on the back screen. In Japan, when they speak English, Japanese subtitles will appear on the bak screen.
俳優：鈴木亮平さん ボランティア消防団員エイジ役。 Actor:Ryohei Leo Suzuki --a role of Eiji, a volunteer fire fighter 数年前から注目していた大好きな俳優さんです。前から2列目の真ん中、手を伸ばせば届きそうな距離で観ました。もうすぐ彼が主演するアニメ実写映画「HK/変態仮面」が公開されます。
He is one of my favorite actors I've been keeping my eyes on him since a few years ago. My seat was in the middle, and 2nd row from the stage. I was able to watch him from a short, arm distance. He is playing the main caractor on the upcoming Anime movie, "HK/HENTAI Kamen".
Right after the big earthquake on 3-11-2011, Tsunami warnings were issued. Volunteer fire fighters lead the evacuation of more than 5000 citizens in Soma city. One old man remained behind, and Eiji was trying to rescue him........
It was a chaos at the hospital with many injuired patients after the big earthquake, big Tsunami, etc.
After the 3-11-11 disaster, many people sacrificed their lives and living and kept working for more than two months. They did not have enogh to eat and did not know if their families were safe. I was overwhealmed by their unconditional love.
劇のあと、英語で舞台挨拶をする塩屋俊監督。 Director Toshi Shioya greeted the audience in English after the play.
The cast was greeted with standing ovation and clappings of the audience at the end. In the play, they called the names of 10 volunteer figher fighters who lost their lives trying to save others. They used the real names. A son of one of them came to Los Angeles to see the play. He arrived at the theatre at the end of the play. He will accompany the actors to the New York performance.
Toshi Shioya, a Japanese actor and director, passed away on 6-5-2013 at age 56. He fell during the practice of the play in Sendai city, Miyagi prefecture, Japan. He was sent to a hospital, but passed away right away. I pray for his great spiritual improvement.
I attended "Megumi JAPAN"'s volunteer supports on May 18 and 19, 2012 for the people near Ishinomaki city, Miyagi prefecture for 3-11-2011 Earthquake and Fukushima Nuclear disaster. I will attach my blog link below. Mr. Toshi Shioya wished not to repeat this kind of tragedy in the world, and started this play. Thank you very much!
