Hi everyone! On this episode, Carly and guest violetposies talk about understudies in Takarazuka, and the understudy performances that took place during this year’s Elisabeth.
CLARIFICATION: we mention that Grand Hotel was at the same time as Rurouni Kenshin, but they weren’t running simultaneously; they took place at roughly the same time of year but one year apart.
Tsukishiro Kanato (Reiko)
Akatsuki Chisei (Ari)
Shinjin Kouen: a special “rising stars” performance each Grand Theater run in which all the roles are played by actresses with 7 years experience or less.
