    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!
