Aaaand, we’re back with more quiz show goodness! This time we are super excited that we managed to get a lot of the crew together, so please join Anna, Carly, Elin, Jen, Kitty, and Julie and play along at home.
Apologies, there were a lot of technical difficulties, which means that although we recorded this back in April, it’s taken us this long to get it put together, so some of the questions are a bit out of date already. There are also a lot of rough bits in the podcast quality, but we’re so excited that we got everyone together, we hope you’ll enjoy it anyway.
So, bring your A-Game! Then tell us how you did in the comments below. 😀
This is an off-the-cuff recording of Lella, Kitty-chan, and their friend Jess at the Grand Theater performance of Caleb Hunt, Private Eye / Greatest Hits. Live fangirling before, during intermission, and after the performance.
Warning: Because of the way this episode was recorded, there is background noise which cannot be filtered out.
In this episode, we review Star Troupe’s “Ouka ni Mae/Romance!!”, which recently wrapped up its Takarazuka run and will begin in Tokyo on October 21st. This is the final show for Hokushou Kairi and Hinami Fuu. We apologize in advance for anything we got wrong about Japanese history!
Chuuzume: This is the scene in the revue show which occurs near the middle of the show, and has the entire troupe on stage dancing together. It’s a kind of “power up” scene to get everyone clapping and tapping their toes.
Ginkyou: A narrow strip of stage that extends around the orchestra pit, approximately 3 feet high and four and a half feet wide. Another trademark of the Takarazuka, the silver bridge is used in much of the performance blocking and in the finale to allow those in the front seats a very up-close look at the stars.
In this episode, we address two listeners’ questions about how we each got into Takarazuka, how we made friends in the Takarazuka fandom, and how we drag other people down with us. How did you get into Takarazuka? Leave your story in the comments!
NOTE: this was recorded before the Mitsuya Nao interview episode, which is the “special thing” we’re referring to when we say we’re not sure when this episode will surface. If you haven’t watched it please do!
Falstaff will run Oct. 10th – Oct. 21st at Bow Hall, and the writer/director is Tani Masazumi.
Carly: The scene in The Entertainer Lella mentioned where Toki Irisu and Seijou Kaito sing in great English definitely did happen! I saw it again today 🙂 Magee of course has great English pronunciation [Jen Note: Magee’s father is American] and I don’t know what Masako’s background is but she matched Magee very well.
